Rossj-Bass. Angelo Gaja 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Angelo Gaja Rossj Bass Chardonnay 2013 is 100% Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel and aged for 6-7 months in oak barriques. Golden in color, this Italian white offers aromas of florals, citrus fruits and honey on the nose. On the palate, elegant flavors with wonderful depth, nice acidity and a long, lingering finish.

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 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

Slightly bricking color with good depth. The nose jumps to a start with notes of toasted cinamon which is quickly joined by smoky speck, plumskin, matchstick, and notes of candle wax and incense. Just a touch lean in the mouth yet with lovely balance. Moves through the mouth with strong acidity and offers up lots of amarena cherry that benefits from a touch of sweetness up front and the cut of minerality on the finish. Fully mature and reasy to go.

Fascinating aromas - raspberries and blackberries pouring forth on the nose with a hint of spices and tobacco. Full bodied with feminine silky, round tannins, an encapsulating finish of exceptional length. One of the best Barbarescos I've ever tried. Give it another 5 years.

Tight, unremarkable. No detailed notes, but if you own it . . . put it down for a few years and hope for the best. Given the source good things will likely happen.
