Just a killer wine! Rustic, broad and beautiful. With age this is really starting to shine with some leather and blood in the nose. Lots of animale and dark fruit. Excellent and very much in the Gaja style

Still firm tannins but elegant, earthy truffle, leathery with fresh acidity.

Red cherries, mint, and florals. Such class enveloped in a sea of tannins. This will unfurl to be a great wine one day.

Killing babies. I believe it needs at least 10-15 years, to say the least

Today I had the pleasure of having the 2010 Gaja Barbaresco. What a wonderful treat.

The nose was very expressive with notes of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, anise, menthol and earthy underbrush.

On the palate the fruit explodes in your mouth with fresh red fruits, cherry and red raspberry. There is black pepper, mint, dry earthy soil and floral notes.

The wine is very well balanced, medium to full bodied, medium + acidity and medium + rounded grippy tannins with a long vibrant finish.

Enjoy your rest of the week and please continue to be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
