Gaja, Barbaresco 2016

RRP £179.68

A wonderful and complete wine. Bright, light-medium cherry colour with orange rim. Intense nose of strawberry, raspberry and cherry, with violet, fresh roses, nail varnish, leather and vanilla. Intense palate but with amazing balance and great freshness, plus ripe and grippy tannins. Very complex, with a precise, long finish. Shows great purity and superb ageing potential – destined to become a legend.
