The nose of this wine is so precise with perfume rose blackberry and raspberry aromas and the full-bodied palate builds and builds and then overflows with ripe fruit and layers of rich ripe velvety tannins. This has amazing opulence yet it's profound and structured. A fabulous wine. The best Sperss ever made. Best after 2013. 1250 cases made. –JS

Gaja's 2003 Sperss is made from vineyards in Serralunga and offers better balance than the Conteisa. It is plump and juicy with a generous core of dark fruit tar and menthol supported by a massive imposing structure. The wine offers notable length although there is a suggestion of heat on the finish. This powerful brooding Sperss will require patience even if today it gives the illusion of being a relatively accessible vintage for this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2023.

Good deep red. Deep brooding aromas of plum menthol truffle marzipan and chestnut; very Serralunga. Fat sweet and full but youthfully inexpressive; impressively thick but monolithic at present. This expands dramatically... Good deep red. Deep brooding aromas of plum menthol truffle marzipan and chestnut; very Serralunga. Fat sweet and full but youthfully inexpressive; impressively thick but monolithic at present. This expands dramatically toward the back finishing with huge broad tannins. A very tight wine in need of extended aging: I can see this being quite long-lived in the way of the most successful 2003 red Burgundies.
