Gaja, Sperss, Barolo 2016

RRP £294

This is a great young wine, one that will deliver an amazing experience over time. The nose is still quite closed, but it offers dark cherries, blackberry jam, vanilla, molasses, cedarwood, sage and rosemary. The tight, powerful palate shows a juicy texture, with ripe, grippy tannins, decent acidity, great balance and complexity on a long finish. I’d love to have this in my cellar. 14.5%
