Perfumed with roses, muted black tea , leather, and red dried cherries...tannins powerful but ever so smooth and acid to match..

Today's wine we opened was the 2014 Gaja Barbaresco. This wine is everything you would expect from the Gaja family wineries and from Barbaresco in the Piedmont region of Italy.

The nose has wonderful rich red fruit of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, currant, licorice, spice and dusty earth.

The palate has an elegant finesse of red fruits, maraschino cherry, red raspberry, strawberry, red currant, spice, licorice, a hint of pepper and rich earth.

This wine is medium bodied that is well balanced with medium + acidity and medium + fine grained tannins that lead to a long fruit filled finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe with all the weather that is happening around the country. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Served blind. Pretty impressive in the sense that its age was so well hidden underneath a pure blanket of reddish berries. Still aromatic. Wood is nicely integrated. Did lack some personality, though.

Wood and sour cherry. Drying on the palate-past it’s best

Sour cherry and tar, with thyme, rosemary and underlying broad fruit. Very sexy, but also some sour and Pepperiness. Still young- lovely.

Plum and leather. Spicy and gorgeously settled. Very pretty and sexy, and deep.

Very delicate and stinky. Pretty and very light. Tea and madirized notes. Pretty and haunting.

Giving this a 9.4 as is but believe it could be a 9.6 with time. Amazing in its youth though!

Blend of 14 sites, all Vinicius separately / cherry, tar / firm tannins / complex, full of energy, dense, high strung
