"The centerpiece of the portfolio, Gaja Barbaresco is a testament to the Gaja family's historic commitment to the appellation and its belief that Barbaresco stands proudly with the great growing regions of the world. The Gaja winery stopped sourcing fruit from other growers in 1961 in order to ensure the utmost quality in its wines. In all, Gaja Barbaresco is produced using grapes grown in 14 vineyards in the village of Barbaresco. Garnet in color, the nose is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, licorice, mineral and coffee scents. Long, complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit." —importer
"Extremely perfumed with roses, dark berries, ash, asphalt, and sliced plums. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a juicy, savory finish. Orange and lemon peel undertones. Gorgeous finish. Hard not to drink now. A beautiful wine. Drink or hold. But why wait?" —James Suckling

"Crushed flowers, tobacco, sweet spices and red berries lift from the glass in the 2011 Barbaresco. Soft silky and accessible, the Barbaresco is already wonderfully open and expressive, as so many wines are in this vintage. Kirsch, hard candy and floral notes add nuance over time. The style is mid-weight and gracious, with gorgeous aromatic complexity and plenty of brightness, especially within the context of the year. Drinking window: 2016-2033." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Smooth and elegant, this opens with a lovely fragrance of violet, rose, lush dark fruit and a whiff of cake spices. The juicy palate doles out ripe black cherry, licorice and mocha alongside silky tannins. It's surprisingly fresh and precise for what was a hot and precocious vintage." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Powerful, pure, extremely deep; velvety tannins." —Decanter Magazine
