Gaja Piemonte

Founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, the Gaja family arrived from Spain during the 19th century. XVII. At that time, the Gaja family opened a tavern in Barbaresco, serving their wines with food and at the end of the 19th century. 19th century, Gaja wines are bottled and supplied to the Italian army in Abyssinia.

In 1937, Giovanni Gaja is the first to put the name Gaja in large red letters on the labels of the jars. The company progresses after World War II when Giovanni Gaja makes a large series of vineyard purchases in terms of scale and wine quality.

In 1994, his great-grandson and current owner, acquired the historic Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino, and in 1996, the family also acquired the Ca ‘Marcanda estate in Bolgheri, both in the Tuscany region.

Barbaresco

The emblematic wine of the Gaja estate.

The garnet color of the wine has a good intensity, the aromas are typical, linear and elegant, with notes of licorice, tobacco, and violet, as well as smoked nuances only visible in the background.

In the mouth, the sensation is harmonious, with an almost salty acidity well controlled by the extracts.

The tannins are just a little dusty and distinct thanks to the relative youth of the wine and it’s easy to see how it will improve with another three years of bottle. The end has a good persistence without any bitterness.

Sperss

The word “Sperss”, which means “nostalgia” in the Piedmont region, was an appropriate term for Angelo Gaja’s eagers to return to Barolo’s production in 1988 using the grapes grown on his property after years of absence.

The wine is just starting to open, offering blackberries, notes of black truffles and hint of roses.

An impressive and sophisticated wine.
