Gaja Barbaresco 2020
Piemonte, Italy, 75cl
Clean and expressive, both on the nose and palate, it opens with pure floral notes of rose petal and elderflowers. Warm spices like black pepper and tobacco give roundness to the bouquet. The palate features a remarkably sweet fruit concentration, with juicy and sweet red and black fruit, such as red cherry, plum, blueberry. The exuberance of the fruit and floral expression is tempered by the good acidity and the silky tannins, leading to a fresh and balanced wine with serious ageing potential and yet inviting in its youth.
"Light ruby coloured with a brilliant translucence, the 2020 is sleek, powerful, linear and brightly fruited with powdery fine grained mineral tannins over potent peppery red berry aromatics, Asian spices, red cherry and pithy wild strawberry. Medium bodied, ultra-pure and magnificently floral with tantalising salty red liquorice nuances make this an incredibly pretty but substantial expression of Nebbiolo that finishes with creamy, drying stony tannins, a crushed limestone minerality before a final reprise of tangy red cherry pastille. A very impressive Gaja Barbaresco vintage that will drink well from release due to its incredible finesse and elegance but will of course be exponentially better in 4 to 5 years’ time. Yet again, Gaja produces a class act!" - 96 Pts, Greg Sherwood MW
