Winemaker's Notes:

Kräftiges Purpurrot, in der Nase intensives Fruchtbukett mit Beeren- und Schwarzkirscharoma, am Gaumen elegante Struktur mit Kraft und Dichte, geschmeidig im Tannin, bietet jetzt schon viel Genuss und verspricht auch in Jahren noch ein herrliches Trinkvergnügen.

The Gaja winery was founded in Piedmont, Italy by Giovanni Gaja in 1859. It has been passed down through five generations of the family (who came to Italy from Spain in the 18th century) now under the direction of his great grandson Angelo Gaja.

The Gaja winery was founded in Piedmont, Italy by Giovanni Gaja in 1859. It has been passed down through five generations of the family (who came to Italy from Spain in the 18th century) now under the direction of his great grandson Angelo Gaja. The initial wines were Barbarescos (in the Barbaresco and Treiso districts), then Barolo (in Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra), and through the years the wines have branched out into other styles and vineyard locations, with expansion into Tuscany in the mid 1990s. These began as expressions of Brunello di Montalcino. In 1996, they launched Ca’Marcanda, a Gaja Super Tuscan made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. This highly successful venture in the Bolgheri of Maremma was intended with the Piedmontese understanding of the different terroirs and how they affect specific grapes, celebrating the best expressions of their environment. In addition to outstanding, world renown wines, Gaja also produces some top notch grappas.  Read less

Great introduction to Gaja wine. Great jammy fruit laid upon a bed of soft tannins from the small amount of sangiovese this wine is blended with.

A well integrated supertuscan plum blackberry and hint of licorice indicate good for at least 10 years

Winemaker Notes - Light garnet color. Bright and fruity with a jammy nose. A delightful wine that combines the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese. Balanced, almost musical, its a pleasure to drink from an early age and also has an aging potential of 5-8 years.
