Aromas of truffles spices and eucalyptus are followed by backward notes of dark cherries in liqueur licorice and well-integrated oak. The flavors indicate a mature wine but there is still a lot of freshness here which makes me think this Barolo still has many years of life ahead. A gorgeous wine. 95 points/drink now-2022Although Gaja is often described as a modernist my sense is that the label is a bit overblown. Fermentations for the Nebbiolo based wines are on the longish side and last 15-20 days. The wines are then aged for one year in barriques to give color after which they complete their wood aging in 75 hectoliter casks. The wines have incredible aging potential even in hot ripe vintages as is demonstrated both by the 1997s I recently tasted and the 1990 Barolo Sperss.
