Single Vineyard small production. Classic style so age worthy. Strong, structured, beautiful mouthfeel and inspiring perfume. This is why we love Brunello.

A bit overripe. Shows lots of fig, raisin and other dried black fruit. Not the tart red fruits I normally expect from Brunello.

Beautifully perfumed with a nose of dark cherry, blueberry, and violet. Wonderful minerality with almost a saline quality. Well structured; long finish. Definitely saw some oak but not overly so, with no reductive qualities—a thoroughly modern Brunello. Good now and for 8+ more years. The single-vineyard Sugarille is the best of Gaja's three 2008 Brunello offerings. #Gaja #Brunello

The 2008 was also fantastic but didn't have the complexity of the 2000

Incredibly fresh and young, only hinting at what's to come.
