  • Vinous | Rating: 94

    Gaja's 2009 Sperss has developed nicely since I last tasted it a few months ago. An intense bouquet redolent of smoke, ash, savory herbs and licorice melds into dense blackberry, plums and black cherry notes. The pedigree of these great Serralunga sites comes through in spades in a vibrant, beautifully exotic Sperss. I expect that the 2009 will drink well early, something that is rarely the case.

    Some very ripe fruit aromas of dried berries, Christmas pudding and some hints of soy sauce and dried meats. Full body, chewy and tangy with lots of cedar and hints of lavender. Lively and muscular. More tannic than the Conteisa and needs another three to four years of bottle age to resolve.

    This rich, velvety red boasts complex black cherry, plum and spice aromas and flavors. The tannins are dense and ripe, adding refinement and lift on the lingering, minerally aftertaste. This tightly wound version needs some time to unwind.

  • Plain and simple, Angelo Gaja is the biggest name in Italian wine. The Gaja winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by four generations of the Gaja family, with Angelo Gaja running the operation since the 1960s. Angelo is credited with modernizing Barbaresco and Barolo wines, having pioneered the use of controlled-temperature fermentation (for reducing oxidation) and small-cask aging (to stabilize color and preserve fruitiness). Gaja is most well-known for his Barbarescos, though the three most sought-after wines, Costa Russi, Sori Tildin and Sori San Lorenzo have recently been reclassified from Barbaresco DOCG to Langhe DOC, giving Gaja more flexibility in the winemaking process. Strikingly profound and built to live for decades, Gaja's wines display opulence and elegance unmatched elsewhere in Italy. These wines, while harnessing modern technology, have a long-established track record, ensuring they will perform well both in the glass and on the auction block. For any collector considering Italian wines, Gaja should be the first name on the list.
