"Ruby red color. The nose shows dark, pure and very focused fruit with classic hints of tar, licorice, and a touch of truffles. Sperss displays the austere character typical of Serralunga terroir: deep structure and lots of ripe tannins. Dense, massive yet seamless, the beautifully integrated wine possesses low acidity as well as a terrific finish." —importer
"With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2011 Langhe Sperss is a wine of profound beauty. This is a velvety and caressing expression with dark fruit layers followed by kirsch, cassis, leather, balsam herb and white truffle. The Gaja family decided to move their bottling date forward in order to preserve the integrity and freshness of fruit in this warm vintage. This move has helped to avoid overripe sensations. In fact, Langhe Sperss seems fresh and tonic. This bodes exceptionally well for its aging potential." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Love the aromas of plums, flowers and dried mushrooms here. Wet soil and lavender too. Full body, firm tannins and a long, delicious finish. The combination of delicious fruit and velvety-textured tannins gives this wine form and structure." —JamesSuckling.com

"A dark, voluptuous beauty, the 2011 Sperss is wonderfully expressive and open today. There is plenty of Serralunga volume and power, but the vintage has given the Sperss softer contours than is typically the case. Lavender, smoke, violets, mint and succulent black cherries blossom through to the inviting, resonant finish. As good as the 2011 is, it also looks to be a relatively early maturing wine by Gaja standards. Drinking window: 2019 - 2031." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
