Good deep red. Musky raspberry, minerals and a whiff of dusty oak on the nose. Spicy red fruit flavors offer good juicy cut and verve. A lively, firmly structured midweight that offers very good mouth coverage and finishes persistent and classically dry.

Floral aromatics give way to bright spiced red fruits, menthol and licorice as the 2005 Barbaresco opens in the glass. This is a firm, classically built wine of notable elegance. The tannins are substantial yet beautifully woven into the wine's mid-weight frame. This is another beautiful Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja, but it will require patience as it is tightly wound today.
Author: James Suckling
Subtle aromas of rose and blackberry follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Chewy. Unfolds on the palate. Layered and beautiful. Refined yet structured.
