Deep ruby to the rim. Subtly complex, sharply defined aromas of black raspberry, violet, camphor, tar and vanilla. Quite closed in the mouth, but already hints at great sweetness and depth. Excellent harmonious acidity clarifies and extends the flavo... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1998 Gaja, Angelo Sperss 750ml

Phenomenal aromas of crushed berries, strawberries, blackberries and minerals. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Just the right amount of wood and fruit. Best after 2006. 2,800 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1998 Gaja Langhe Sperss 750ml

Wine Spectator ReviewLoads of cherry, raspberry and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, with soft, well-knit tannins and a long, long finish. A modern and delicious Barbaresco. Best after 2003.
