Very rare, from the region's beginnings as a serious red wine appellation. For the most part, Barbaresco was pretty much living in near total obscurity until the 1960s, when Giovanni Gaja (Angelo's father) began proving what could come of these vineyards. In the '70s, his son Angelo introduced single-vineyard offerings, and the rest is Italian wine history!
Two rare bottles in very good general conditions as visible in photos: level and color are great!
A very classic Gaja Barbaresco, elegant with ripe and spicy fruit, great depth and complexity. The mild and ripe tannins provide this wine with gentleness and finesse, but also strength, richness, elegance and opulence. Very well balanced and well structured with good persistence and a long seductive elegant finish.
