Winemaking

The Nebbiolo grapes undergo 3 weeks of temperature- controlled fermentation at 26 to 30 °C in steel tanks. The wine then matures in barriques for 12 months, before spending a further 12 months in large oak barrels.

Our tasting note

The complexity achieved with this classic Barbaresco is the result of the combination of high-quality Nebbiolo from the 14 different Gaja vineyards around the parish of Barbaresco. The wine has a typical Barbaresco nose of wild berries, plums, liquorice and coffee. Despite its strength and intensity, Angelo Gaja's Barbaresco is known for its elegance and multi-layered finish with fine and silky tannins. Each Barbaresco produced by Gaja is an expression of the respective year and has a large potential for maturing.

Gaja

The vineyard Gaja in Barbaresco was founded in 1859 and is managed in the fourth generation by Angelo Gaja since 1961. Angelo Gaja is probably the most well-known Italian vineyard owner internationally. No other winemaker has received the «TreBicchieri» - the highest honour awarded by the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso - on so many occasions as he has. He has been repeatedly chosen as «Man of the Year» by the magazines Decanter and Winespectator. The success of his wines must be seen in conjunction with Angelo Gaja's charismatic personality. His life is a «goodwill tour» for the family-owned plants. At home in Barbaresco, he enjoys the invaluable energetic support of his wife Lucia, his daughters Gaia and Rossana as well as the gifted winemaker Guido Rivella. Gaja's wines are rooted in tradition, yet embrace modernity. The wines are true to their origin in the misty rolling landscape of Langhe, yet are free of any provincialism.
