Gaja Barbaresco DOCG 2013 Product #33167 (In Stock)
Gaja Barbaresco DOCG 2013 Gaja Barbaresco DOCG 2013

Made from 14 separate vineyards across Barbaresco, in 2013 the “normale” is the essence of traditional Barbaresco but with no lack of generosity or immediate appeal.

“Medium ruby color. Extremely aromatic with rose petal, strawberry and stone character. Medium to full body. Ultra-fine tannins. Hints of walnut. Super long finish. A wine that is a joy to drink now but will reward you even more in four or five years and onwards.”  James Suckling 94 points

“The 2013 Barbaresco is fabulous. In fact, this is one of the best Barbarescos I have tasted at Gaja in many years. Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully sculpted in the glass, the 2013 possesses tons of understated intensity. Sweet red cherry, mint, white pepper and anise are all lifted in the glass. The 2013 is an almost shockingly classic Barbaresco from Gaja. The translucent color, vibrant Nebbiolo fruit and austere but noble tannins represent a move towards a much more traditional style. For readers who can find it, the 2013 is simply a must-have wine.”  Vinous (Galloni) 96 points

Gaja Barbaresco Sori Tildin 2013 Product #33168 (In Stock)
Gaja Barbaresco Sori Tildin 2013 Gaja Barbaresco Sori Tildin 2013

25 bottles available.  This was Gaja’s second vineyard designate wine, and it’s perch at 200 meters up always gives Sori Tildin lovely perfume and grace.  Wonderfully restrained oak here and true elegance.

“The perfumes are fabulous here with strawberry, walnut and porcini mushrooms. Mountain herbs. Full body, tight and integrated tannins and a long finish. Refined and beautiful. Hard not to drink now.”  James Suckling 97 points

“As always, the Sorì Tildìn is a wine of nuance and delineation above all else. Beautifully sculpted and precise, the 2013 offers up a compelling interplay of dark red cherry, mint, lavender and licorice. A subtle accent of French oak adds nuance without detracting from the wine's translucent personality and overall energy. The 2013 Sorì Tildìn is another drop-dead gorgeous beauty from Gaja.”  Vinous (Galloni) 97 points

Gaja Barbaresco Sori Lorenzo 2013 Product #33169 (In Stock)
Gaja Barbaresco Sori Lorenzo 2013 Gaja Barbaresco Sori Lorenzo 2013

Just 15 bottles available.  Gaia’s first vineyard designate Barbaresco debuted in 1967 and year-in, year-out, defines “greatness” in Piemonte reds.  Powerful and needing time, but built to last decades.

“Majestic aromas of crushed berry, meat, orange peel. Full body, very tannic yet ripe tannins and exquisite fruit. Amazing depth and density.  They said they macerated a little more than normal because the fruit was perfect. A classic nebbiolo that reminds me of the great 1996. Really cool. About 30% less production. Don’t touch for five to 10 years. A celebratory wine for Gaja’s return to the Barbaresco appellation.”  James Suckling 100 points

“Gaja's Sorì San Lorenzo, arguably the most iconic of all the wines, is superb. The 2013 is dark, virile and imposing, with a more classically leaning expression of power than in the recent past, not to mention tons of raw intensity. A host of graphite, savory herb, menthol, licorice, lavender, smoke and dark-fleshed fruits meld into the huge, tannic finish. There is a touch of French oak, but the personality of this site marries very naturally with the cooperage.”  Vinous (Galloni) 98 points
