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

What else can I say about this Super-Tuscan other than it's my favorite of its style at this price. The fruit, the extracted tannins, the way it evolves as you drink it - even though I've decanted it for 45minutes already! - this wine rocks! Open a bottle, let it sit for an hour, then let it knock your socks off... nuff said.

Superbly rich, smooth, and spicy, perfect with steaks. Lovely elongated aftertaste, and discreet nose.

Very nice Tuscan IGT (Blended Merlot 55%, Syrah 35%, Sangiovese 10%) Garnet with a Brown rim. Main aromas cherry spice and oak. Complex and smooth with a long finish and a nice fresh acidity to it.(medium bodied) To be served in a deep glass and preferably open an hour before. Nice wine to be enjoyed by most of us.

Gajaandrsquo;s 2005 Promis (55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese) is a plump, juicy wine bursting with ripe dark fruit, leather and spices. This fresh, engaging wine is best enjoyed over the next two to three years. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2010.

Aromas of plum and meat follow through to a full-bodied palate, with soft tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best after 2009.
