Gaja Langhe Sperss 2010

Gaja Langhe Sperss 2010

750ML    
Sku: 040673

Angelo Gaja's father bought grapes for his Barolo from this Serralunga vineyard until 1961 when the Gaja family decided to produce wines only from estate-owned vineyards. It was with great pride and a bit of emotion that Gaja resumed producing Barolo when they acquired this vineyard in 1988. Reflecting the decades-long wait, the wine was named Sperss, Piedmontese for "nostalgia."

Rating
Wine Advocate, 96 Points:
The 2010 Sperss delivers a broad approach to the bouquet with bold flavors of red fruit, spice and milk chocolate that caress the palate. The wine sports a broad frame with beautiful fruit filling at its core. The tannins in Sperss are very firm and structured and this wine won’t be ready for five to ten more years. Drink: 2018-2040.

Wine Spectator, 97 Pts
Fragrant, with incense and sandalwood notes framing the core of cherry, accented by hints of leather, tobacco and tea. Exhibits purity and density despite the formidable tannins. The finish is long and complex, revealing fruit and spice elements. Best from 2018 through 2035


Wine maker notes
Beautiful ruby in the glass. The nose shows dark, pure and very focused fruit with classic hints of tar, licorice and a touch of truffles. Sperss displays the austere character typical of Serralunga terroir: deep structure and lots of ripe tannins. Dense, massive yet seamless, this beautifully integrated wine possesses low acidity as well as a terrific finish.

Other text
The Gaja family acquired the 30-acre Sperss vineyard in 1988. The vineyard is located in the Marenca-Rivette area in the commune of Serralunga in the Barolo production zone. The word sperss is the Piedmontese term for "nostalgia." It refers this particular vineyard site from which they had purchased grapes until 1961 when they stopped purchasing grapes and began producing wines exclusively from their own vineyards.
