Gaja’s Barolo 2013s
20 June 2017

There are no two ways about it, exciting times are afoot at Gaja. As the gregarious Gaia Gaja takes the helm at this iconic Piedmont estate, 2013 signals the first vintage since 1996 to re-join the Barolo DOCG classification, marking a stylistic shift toward freshness, purer tannin definition and clearer vineyard signatures.
