Gaja

The Gaja winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859, the great-grandfather of the current owner Angelo Gaja. Angelo is probably the most famous Italian winery owner internationally. No other winemaker has won the Tre Bicchieri , the highest award from the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso, as often as he has. He has been voted the Man of the Year by the Decanter and Winespectator magazines several times. The success of his wines is inseparable from his charismatic personality, and his life is a goodwill tour for the family vineyards. Gaja s wines are rooted in tradition, yet keep an eye on modernity. The company is now already in its fifth generation, and is managed by the two daughters Gaia and Rossana and son Giovanni. The Gaja family s vineyards now extend from Tus cany to Sicily. However, the Gajas home remains in the famous wine village of Barbaresco, where their unrivalled success story began.

Winemaking

Traditional fermentation is carried out over 3 weeks at a controlled temperature in steel tanks. The Brunello then matures for 24 months in 500-litre oak barrels, followed by 12 months of maturing in bottles.

Our tasting note

The Brunello has a rich, intensive red colour. A highly expressive bouquet with hints of cherries and elderberries as well as fine aromatic herbs. It demonstrates ripeness, well in corporated tannins on the pallet, a balanced richness, arich structure and a long-lasting finish.
