Winemaking

The Grappa di Barolo is exclusively produced from Nebbiolo grape pomace and then matures for 1 year in barriques made from acacia, juniper, oak and birch.

Our tasting note

The Grappa di Barolo has a beautiful, honey-yellow colour as well as a seductive nose of warm and aged wood. The aroma of raisins and dried herbs can also be detected. It is very harmonious: sweet and bitter notes combine wonderfully on the pallet and create a truly unique finish.

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.
