  • Antonio Galloni, February 2022, Score: 95

    Gaja's 2018 Barolo Conteisa is elegant, gracious and classy to the core. Silky tannins and lifted, floral aromatics give this mid-weight Barolo tons of charm. This is classic Cerequio. Sweet red berry, pomegranate, kirsch, blood orange and mint notes, that are such signatures of this La Morra site, are beautifully delineated. All the elements are so nicely balanced. I can’t wait to see how the 2018 ages. The Gajas were especially selective in 2018. Bottled production for Conteisa is down 50%. Drink 2026-2043.

  • James Suckling, August 2022, Score: 96

    The fresh and just ripe strawberry aromas really come through here, together with some licorice and floral highlights. Medium to full body with fine, focused tannins that are vertical and bring your palate down through the wine. A solid and beautiful wine for the vintage. Try after 2025.

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.Read less

Region

Piedmont

Piedmont is located in the north western corner of Italy. Though several grape varieties are prominent such as Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato, it is Nebbiolo that reigns supreme. It produces wines that are not particularly deep in colour, yet they are perfumed, powerful and can age for many years. Due to the ethereal nature of the Nebbiolo grape and the numerous single vineyard wines, many compare top examples to grand cru Burgundies of the Côte de Nuits.Mountainous, its vineyards are cut into the hillsides forming terraces reminiscent of the Mosel Valley in Germany and the northern Rhone Valley in France. The two most notable appellations are Barolo and Barbaresco.
