Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 92

I do not think Angelo Gaja has made a better cuvee of his classic Barbaresco (there's nothing "regular" about either the price or the quality!) than the 1990. From its deep, saturated, dark ruby color, to its big, spicy, roasted nose of red and black fruits, nuts, and cedar, this huge, massive, super-concentrated wine exhibits layers of flavors. Although present, the tannin is sweet, giving the wine a precocious, approachable style. It is a blockbuster Barbaresco for drinking over the next 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator

A stunning wine, rich, ripe and supple, balanced with beautifully realized berry, red plum, vanilla and exotic spices, smoothly playing the fruit and toasty oak character off each other. A many layered wine that is approaching drinkability. 7,500 cases made.

This is a beauty. Deep purple color with lovely aromatics of violet and cedar. Licorice, coffee and spices on the palate. Incredibly balanced. Long, long finish. Needs a lot of air.
