Gaja Barbaresco 2017
The 2017 Gaja Barbaresco is a garnet color in appearance. A generous and flowery nose with intense notes of rose, licorice and blood orange. It is showing intense red and black fruit driven by aromas of strawberry, sour black cherry and mulberry. The palate is fleshy, loaded with the same fruity notes raising from the glass. The fine-grained tannins balance the acidity and lead to a wine with a considerable volume on the palate. The finish is lingering and elegantly sweet.
"Glorious aromas of flowers, crushed berries, strawberries and dried herbs. Some tea. Full-bodied and layered with a wonderfully curated, polished tannin structure and backbone. Give it three or four years to soften." 97 Points James Suckling
