    "Gaia & Rey" Chardonnay Langhe DOP 2016

    Gaja's daughter Gaia and her grandmother Rey with her name were the godfathers of this wine: Gaia & Rey lies in the glass like a golden jewel and unfolds a balsamic fruit scent of yellow peaches, melon and banana. The taste of the alcohol component and the use of wood are perfectly controlled by mineral and spicy components. SUPERIORE.DE

    "It's hard not to love the 2016 Langhe Gaia & Rey. The winemaking approach has been tweaked to allow for less malolactic fermentation. Before, up to 60% or 70% of the mass completed malolactic fermentation, but with this vintage, that number has been reduced to about 20%. Indeed, the acidity is bright, forward and elegantly unmasked. This is a sharp and tonic white wine that delivers a firm grasp on the palate. The flavor profile includes citrus, honeydew melon and salty mineral nuances derived from limestone-rich soils." Robert Parker

    "This is very well done with chalk, a touch of cloves, quartz, spices, slate, limes, lemons, thyme and sea salt. The palate is very sophisticated with ripeness tuned to a tee. Full-bodied but very reserved and subtle with layers of green fruit and spicy undertones throughout. Cutthroat acidity that never overpowers. Long on the finish." James Suckling
