A most compelling Barbaresco
23 July 2019

Gaja arguably produces the finest expression of Barbaresco. Some would say that Angelo Gaja was to a greater or lesser extent responsible for putting Barbaresco on the map. He succeeded in elevating his family’s estate from relative obscurity to being one of the most sought after names in the world of fine wine. Decades ahead of his time, he helped breathe life and dynamism into a much underrated region and spearheaded the movement towards single cru bottlings as early as the 1960s. The straight Barbaresco, however, is possibly the best value wine in the Gaja stable. Barbaresco Gaja 2016 is exquisitely expressive and seductively aromatic. It has a wonderful structure and intensity which is held together by pure and precise fruit; an elegant yet serious drop.

2016 is set to be an historic vintage in Barbaresco. The 2016 Barbarescos have been lauded by Galloni as “some of the most compelling young wines he has tasted in twenty years of visiting the region”. In 2016 favourable climatic conditions produced crops of high quality and quantity, with a sugar concentration to rival the richness of 2015 but with more pronounced structure and acidity, which will give them wonderful aging potential.
