Gaja's 2016 Barbaresco is positively stellar. A wine of poise and grace, the 2016 has so much to offer. Expressive spice and floral notes open up first, but what really stands out is the wine's nuance and delineation. There is a sense of translucency to the 2016 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, mint, cinnamon and rose petal develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. Quite simply, the 2016 is one of the very finest Gaja Barbarescos in recent memory. This is such a gorgeous wine. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019)

The excellent vintage shining through here and massively better than the 2015 Sori Tildin from the previous evening. Chance to save some money 😂

17.5/20 (93/100) Розовые лепестки в аромате на первом плане, вишня, малина, белый перец. Не плотное, с высокой кислотностью и довольно интенсивными, деликатными по текстуре, пока ещё сухими танинами. Брусника во вкусе доминирует. Продолжительное послевкусие. Очень молодо.
