($185) Dark red. Aromatic nose combines currant, plum, tobacco and dried flowers. Sweet and rich but very closed today, with its spine and acidity in the foreground. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a hint of warmth.

Medium ruby. Gaja's 1999 Barbaresco opens with a delicate, perfumed nose followed by sweet red fruit, tar, licorice, wet earth and smoke flavors with excellent length and overall harmony although it can't quite match the sheer appeal of the 2000 and 2001 versions. With some air it is approachable now, although a few years of cellaring will be beneficial. It should drink well to age twenty.

A super wine. Fabulous, bright aromas of berry and spices, with hints of cinnamon. Full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a gorgeous finish. Almost as good as the 1997. 5,800 cases made.

Classic nose of rose, tar, mint, and earth. Gaja has said that to love Barbaresco and Barolo one must love tannin. This wine epitomizes this comment because the wine carries quite a bit of hard angular tannin on its frame. The wine finishes with moderately length showing some earthy fruits beneath the tannic overlay.
