Barbaresco

Winery

GAJA, Barbaresco, Piedmont

Denomination

Barbaresco D.O.P.

Varieties

Nebbiolo

Vineyards

14 vineyards situated in the municipality of Barbaresco.
The land, at a height between 250 and 330 m above the sea level, covers a surface of 21.4 hectares.

The plants are 40 years old on average.

Winemaking method

The grapes, coming from each single vineyard, separately undergo fermentation, maceration and ageing in oak for 12 months. Then they are blended and further aged in oak for another 12 months.

Characteristics

The Nebbiolo vine is particularly affected by the small differences in the various types of soil. The blend of the grapes coming from the 14 vineyards stresses the features of the different terroirs, thus creating a complex and balanced wine. The bouquet smells of soft fruits, flowers, delicate spices and mineral notes. The structure is dense but elegant. It has a lingering finish with refined tannins. Each GAJA Barbaresco is the faithful expression of the production year and is suitable for a long bottle ageing.
