  • This cuvée is probably one of the best illustrations of the typical character of the wines of Brunello di Montalcino. Angelo Gaja has brought the very best out of the Sangiovese grape, creating a wine with a ruby-red colour and an intensely fruity (cherry, almond) and spicy (cinnamon, clove) bouquet. The palate is perfectly ripe and polished at the same time. It goes without saying that this is a truly great wine!

    Angelo Gaja is probably one of the greatest names in Italian winemaking. Born in 1940, he took over the family vineyard in 1961 in the hilly Langhe region of the Piedmont which can trace its roots back to 1859. He now manages approximately 100 hectares of wines and does not buy in any grapes. Gaja was instrumental in raising the international profile of fine Piedmontese wines, notably Barbarescos and Barolos, with his distinctive use of new vinification techniques and ageing methods, at odds with regional practices at the time: choosing the best parcels, reducing yields, and using new French oak casks instead of Yugoslavian oak barrels. His best Barbaresco parcels now produce some of the finest wines in Italy (Sori Tildin, Sori San Lorenzo, and Costa Russi). He was also the first winegrower to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay, as well as Sauvignon Blanc instead of Nebbiolo, contrary to the advice of his peers.

Tasting notes - Extract
"First vintage of the estate. Maturing cardinal ruby with orange rim. Incense and hints of dried fruit and fine oak. Finer than 2007 and it still needs to become a whole. Good grip of powdery and very muscular tannins. Still quite compact. Quite the dried-fruit direction, but with complexity. The tannins make the finish a little dry.", Walter Speller for Jancis Robinson
