GAJA, Barbaresco, Piedmont
The Conteisa vineyard is situated in Cerequio, in the municipality of La Morra.
The land, facing south, consists of clayey-calcareous marls with a considerable presence of sand, and covers a surface of 6 hectares, with average altitude of 380 m above the sea level.
The vines are 60 years old on average.
Fermentation and maceration for around three weeks followed by ageing in oak for 30 months.
While Sperss is usually deeper and more austere, Conteisa has a nose full of flowery and delicate notes, very fresh and aromatic. On the palate, it reveals sweet wild cherries and delicate aromatic herbs, a voluptuous body and a harmonious and balanced tannin texture. High ageing potential.
