Extremely balanced, this '12 Barbaresco places Nebbiolo's transparent fruit on a base of fresh herbs, pepper, crushed flowers and wet river rocks. As it crosses the palate, this Barbaresco reveals temptingly sweet inner scents that complement its chewy, fine-grained tannins.
Overall, it is a refined classic bottling that fans of traditional Barbaresco will love. A single-variety Nebbiolo and the only wine to follow the DOCG scheme, this Barbaresco honors Gaja's winemaking heritage by blending it into eight separate vineyards for this bottling.
Gaja ferments each batch of vineyard separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about three weeks and malolactic fermentation takes place in a barrique. After fermentation, the individual wines mature for one year in a barrique.
