Gaja Barbaresco 2010

Gaja Barbaresco 2010

750ML        
Sku: 033603

One of Italy's great red wines, produced from Nebbiolo grapes grown in the Langhe area of Piedmont. The wine takes its name from the village of its origin.

Tasting notes
The nose is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, licorice, mineral and coffee scents. Long, complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit.

Tinged with new oak that lends a spicy impression, this red evokes cherry, menthol and underbrush notes. Supple and beautifully balanced, with a long finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.óB.S.

Gaja’s classic Barbaresco is gorgeous in 2010, showing an intense perfume of violet, earth and ripe red fruits punctuated by balsamic notes. The palate delivers rich wild cherry notes layered with mint, cinnamon and eucalyptus. This is structured and elegant and will develop more complexity over time. Drink this after 2018. - Cellar Selection
