Gaja Barbaresco 2020

57 units available online.
Product description

Founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, the winery of the same name is probably the symbol of the Langhe, with all its history and the legacy it delivers to posterity. Led with passion, strength and tenacity by Angelo Gaja together with his sons, Gaia, Rossana and Giovanni, it is one of the most important companies for the production of Barbaresco.

This Barbaresco shows notes of strawberry, red fruit, and cherry. The palate shows great integration of the tannins, gentle and graceful. Blackberry, orange, and floral notes yield to a delicate, palate, and voluminous finish. The wines are characterized by precise and complex fruit expressions and clean and elegant aromas. They are wines that are already drinkable but will reward with time as the presence of fruit is always a guarantee of aging potential.

95 Points - James Suckling

So many aromas of fresh rose petals as well as hibiscus tea. Medium-bodied with crunchy and flowery character with sliced strawberries and a bright finish. So appealing with lovely structure. Chewy at the end.

A pale ruby, and blended from 14 vineyard sites, the 2020 Barbaresco was tasted as a barrel sample. Spicy and pure, it is full of red berries with Asian spice and white pepper. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, with elegance and refinement throughout, approachable and fine tannins, no harsh edges, and a long-lasting floral finish. This seem to be a vintage that will drink well early but have plenty of longevity as well.

This round red is woven with cherry, raspberry, mineral, eucalyptus and hay flavors. Balanced, with a good dose of well-integrated tannins that lend support on the lively finish.
