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.

All of the four types of vines are processed individually and fermented over 2 weeks at 25 to 27 °C in steel tanks. The wine matures for 12 months in barriques, followed by 6 months of maturing in bottles.

Our tasting note

Sito Moresco has a ruby red colour with mild garnet red highlights. The bouquet is characterised by a mature aroma of red fruit such as plums and cherries. The wine is harmonious, juicy and compact on the palate with an unmistakable hint of saffron. It has a long, bold finish.

Barolo Dagromis DOP

Grapes 100% Nebbiolo
Winemaking

The Barolo Dagromis originate in the Nebbiolo wine gardens of the Serralunga and La Morra parishes. Following 3 weeks of fermentation in steel tanks, the wine matures in barriques for 12 months and in large oak barrels for 18 months.

Our tasting note

The Barolo Dagromis has a deep colour and has an intensive wild-berry as well as floral aroma. In the mouth, the drinker feels the firm and, at the same time, soft elegant structure. It reflects the opposite of an uncultivated muscle head. Thanks to the longer maturing in the wine cellar, it can be drunk when young.
