Description

The Nebbiolo vine is particularly affected by the small differences in the various types of soil. The blend of the grapes coming from the 14 vineyards stresses the features of the different terroirs, thus creating a complex and balanced wine. The bouquet smells of soft fruits, flowers, delicate spices and mineral notes. The structure is dense but elegant. It has a lingering finish with refined tannins. Each GAJA Barbaresco is the faithful expression of the production year and is suitable for a long bottle ageing.

Aroma

The 2017 Barbaresco nose is generous and flowery with intense notes of rose, liquorice and blood orange. It is red and black fruit driven with evident aromas of strawberry, sour black cherry and mulberry.

Taste

The palate is fleshy, loaded with the same fruity notes raising from the glass. The fine-grained tannins balance the acidity and lead to a wine with a considerable volume on the palate. The finish is lingering and elegantly sweet. 2017 was a warm vintage, hard to notice, due to the freshness and vibrancy of this wine.

Vinification

The grapes, coming from each single vineyard, separately undergo fermentation, maceration and ageing in oak for 12 months.

Aging

Then they are blended and further age in oak for another 12 months.
