    Barbaresco DOCG 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Complex and multilayered classic from the old master of Nebbiolo from Piedmont. In the nose cedar, plum, red fruits, undergrowth and some rose scent. Balanced, spicy palate, the tannins firm and the finish precise and long. This muscular monument of a red wine definitely needs a few more years of bottle ageing, with a little patience it will transform into pure elegance! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright, brightening ruby garnet. Opens with emphatic spicy notes of clove, some rose and lots of juicy cherry. Round and supple on the attack, then opens with present, crisp tannin, is very well integrated, final firm pressure and savory." Falstaff

    "Fragrant and refined, this opens with heady scents of wild berry, rose petal, camphor and underbrush. Elegantly structured, the polished palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, blood orange and star anise framed in taut, fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

    "The Gaja 2017 Barbaresco is nuanced and delicate with ever-expanding aromatic intensity that amply fills the balloon of your glass. The wine takes a little while to open fully, and it slowly releases forest berry, powdered licorice, toasted aniseed, spearmint, dried lavender and rosemary essence to build a lasting bouquet. The mouthfeel is streamlined and almost steely, with an extremely linear approach that adds to its length and persistency. The tannins are tucked into the wine's delicate fiber, but you do feel the extra textural firmness of the hot vintage nonetheless. As we have seen in past vintages, more definition is added by a pretty mineral note that is a common thread in these wines from Gaja." Robert Parker

    "Glorious aromas of flowers, crushed berries, strawberries and dried herbs. Some tea. Full-bodied and layered with a wonderfully curated, polished tannin structure and backbone. Give it three or four years to soften. Try after 2023." James Suckling
