A mid ruby red in the glass with a nose that needed some coaxing. Tight. When it comes forward the aromas of blackberries, strawberries and light rose are there in typical style. Full bodied and mouth coating, good firm tannins and a long finish. Luscious mid palate, lots of fruit, well balanced, opulent and structured. 93 Points

This barbaresco was young when we drank it but it lived up to the Gaja name as usual. I can see where more aging would greatly enhance this ruby red. It had medium body with berry, licorice and spicy notes. Good tannins and a long finish. http://www.deepredcellar.com

Floral aromatics give way to bright spiced red fruits menthol and licorice as the 2005 Barbaresco opens in the glass. This is a firm classically built wine of notable elegance. The tannins are substantial yet beautifully woven into the wines mid-weight frame. This is another beautiful Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja but it will require patience as it is tightly wound today. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.. I was blown away by Angelo Gajas 2005 wines from Barbaresco. When all is said and done Gaja may have well produced not the wine but rather the wines of the vintage in a year that was excellent but not profound. While Gajas 2005 dont have the explosive multi-dimensional personalities of his 2004s they are vibrant offerings that will thrill readers who love Piedmont wines. As always Gaja blends in a small percentage of Barbera in his single-vineyard wines but that is hardly noticeable in this vintage. I also noted less new oak than has generally been the case in the recent past. The wines showcase very
