Tasting Notes

  • JRA

    “Deep ruby. Lots of oak and lively, concentrated cherry on the nose. Oak has quite a big impact but there is such a lot of fruit that it integrates. The finish has amazing length and muscular grip, but it could do with much less oak, because it plays up on the finish.”

    Deep red. Ripe red cherry, sweet spices and candied violet on the ample nose, plus a hint of alcohol-derived heat. Rich, dense and plush, featuring flinty and savory flavors of plums and dark berries nicely framed by youthfully chewy tannins. Finishes long, clean and pure with an enticingly creamy, suave blackberry-nectar-like quality. Richer and deeper than the entry-level Brunello, but the 15% alcohol is a little too noticeable and keeps my score down. Ian D'Agata 2023-2034

Producer

Angelo Gaja

Founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859, the Gaja Winery has since been owned and operated by five generations of the Gaja family. In 1994, Gaja acquired its first wine estate in Tuscany, Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino. Two years later, they acquired a second property, Ca'Marcanda, located in Castagneto Carducci within the prestigious Bolgheri appellation. Currently, the Gaja Winery owns 250 acres of vineyards in Piedmont, located in the Barbaresco district (Barbaresco and Treiso) and the Barolo district (Serralunga d'Alba and La Morra). Today, Gaja’s reputation as one of Italy’s finest wine producers can be attributed to great-grandson, Angelo Gaja, whose innovation and dedication has helped to define Italian wine over the last 30 years. Through daring viticultural and winemaking decisions, Angelo has helped to inspire the next generation, most notably daughters Gaia and Rossana, as well as son Giovanni. This fifth-generation dynasty continue to move Gaja forward, producing wines of rare purity and undeniable quality.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
