Gaja, Sperss, Barolo 1995

RRP £215

I had an amazing Sperss 1995 a few months back, but this was a touch disappointing in comparison, without the same levels of complexity, which I can only put down to bottle variation. An open and expressive nose of plum, prune, dry figs, potpourri, ink and nail varnish didn’t follow through on the palate, which was medium-bodied and well balanced, with high acidity, grippy ripe tannins and a decent finish. 13.5%
