Gaja is an iconic winery of the Langhe hills (UNESCO World Heritage Site) in Piedmont, Italy. Thanks to the great vision and experience of five generations, Gaja family is always one step ahead, making excellent wines in a perfect blend of tradition and innovation.

This extremely well-balanced, elegant and complex red wine derives from the longevity and complexity of Nebbiolo (around 85% of the blend) combined with the pleasant acidity of Barbera grapes and the smoothness of Merlot. Indeed the 2016 vintage in the Langhe was certainly one of the very best in recent years, as we can find out in the harmony and balance of the wine.

Bright ruby red color with some garnet reflection. The first sniff reveals the beautiful complexity and intensity of the glass, aromas of cherry, red plum and raspberry merge greatly with floral notes of violets and roses, herbaceous and dark spice hints with a balsamic note in the background.

The mouth is where the great finesse and elegance of the wine are glorified. The sip is rich, deep and structured, characterized by an incredible freshness and soft, well integrated velvety tannins. All the red fruits, floral, herbal and spices aromas are perfectly merged together, surrounded by earthy aromas of maturation. The finish is long with subtle balsamic notes, calling for another sip which will be slightly different from the previous one, as the wine change in the glass, revealing a great complexity and potential for age. 

Nose and Palate: Cherry; Red Plum; Raspberry; Violets; Roses; Blueberry; Black Pepper; Blackcurrant leaf; Mushrooms, Forest Floor. An extremely well-balanced, elegant and complex red wine.
