Gaja Dagromis Barolo, 2017, Piemonte, Italy
The history of innovation in wine production that lies behind the Gaja name is legendary in the industry. Family owned and first founded in 1859 with the Gaja Winery in Barbaresco, the Gaja family have been growing vines and making wine for five generations.
The premium grapes are sourced from vineyards in both Serralunga and La Morra. The grapes from each single vineyard are fermented, macerated and aged for 12 months completely separately. They are then blended and further aged in oak for another 18 months.
Violet, rose petals and white pepper rise from the glass. A pleasant freshness to the palate with juicy red orange and grapefruit notes. Fragrant, medium in body and well balanced. An initial dry sensation from the oak, that softens with time. Noticeable tannins, yet fine. About to bloom, its harmonious complexity foretells a promising ageing potential.
