    Barbaresco DOCG 2015

    Barbaresco of Gaja with floral aromas, notes of light red fruits, menthol and liquorice. Very clear and full-bodied taste, great fruit. Classically built with remarkable elegance. The tannins are still lively and, like every year, require a little patience. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright ruby garnet. Dense and very present nose, rich notes of ripe peach, some rhubarb, then raspberry. A lot of sweet, ripe fruit, after dark cherries and raspberries, opens with present, dense tannin, builds up long, in the finale firm pressure." Falstaff

    "Seductive scent of stone fruit, herbs and blossoms. Perfectly balanced on the palate, the acidity presents itself accentuated, the tannins are robust, in the finish mineral-salty aromas in combination with a lot of fruit and finesse." Vinum

    "The 2015 Barbaresco was to be bottled a week after I tasted this sample for review. Gaia Gaja was waiting for the right moon before commencing bottling. This vintage is not unlike the 2005 growing season that saw a good amount of rain in spring and scorching heat in the summer. The risk of downy mildew made vintners extra vigilant. Although the 2015 vintage was not ideal for color fixing Nebbiolo (indeed, this wine is slightly less intense in terms of its color saturation), it did prove an important year for power, structure and dry extract. This is a full and generous expression with a fine, loose texture and rich fruit flavors." Robert Parker

    "Meticulous vineyard work on the 14 parcels that are the source of this blend has given outstanding results. The aromatic nose is packed with generous ripe red fruits, and it's beautifully polished and stylish. The palate is rich, full-bodied and rounded. There's concentration and power, and it's very spicy and assertive, with impressive punch and drive. Truly imposing." Decanter

    "Gaja's 2015 Barbaresco is gorgeous. Deep, pliant and resonant, the 2015 exudes class from the very first taste. Today, the aromatics are not especially open or expressive, but it is the wine's depth and overall sense of harmony that really carry the day. Hints of orange peel, spice and rosewater give the 2015 an exotic aromatic top register that is hugely appealing. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. The 2015 is a wonderfully complete and harmonious wine, but it really does need a few years in the cellar to fully unwind." Antonio Galloni

    "A rich and layered Barbaresco with cedar and plums, as well as light leather and rose aromas that follow to a full yet balanced palate and a chewy finish. Very polished. Drink in 2020, but already beautiful." James Suckling

    "A combination of savory and fruit elements, this red reveals cherry, berry, eucalyptus, menthol, tar and mineral flavors. Firms up, with monolithic tannins locking this tight. Patience is required." Wine Spectator
