Gaja Barbaresco 2016 Magnum

Clean and expressive, both on the nose and palate, it opens with pure floral notes of rose petal and elderflowers. Warm spices like black pepper and tobacco give roundness to the bouquet. The palate features a remarkably sweet fruit concentration, with juicy and sweet red and black fruit, such as red cherry, plum, blueberry. The exuberance of the fruit and floral expression is tempered by the good acidity and the silky tannins, leading to a fresh and balanced wine with serious ageing potential and yet inviting in its youth

Gaja Barbaresco 2016 Magnum

Clean and expressive, both on the nose and palate, it opens
with pure floral notes of rose petal and elderflowers. Warm
spices like black pepper and tobacco give roundness to the
bouquet. The palate features a remarkably sweet fruit
concentration, with juicy and sweet red and black fruit, such
as red cherry, plum, blueberry. The exuberance of the fruit

Vineyard
The grapes come in from 14 vineyards situated in the
municipality of Barbaresco. The land, at a height between
250 and 330 m above sea level, covers a surface of 21.4
hectares with the vines being on average 40 years old.
Winemaking
The grapes from each single vineyard are vinified separately.
Following fermentation and maceration, they are initially
aged in oak for 12 months. They are then blended and spend
an additional 12 months in oak. The fermentations were
regular and steady, with an average length of fifteen days.
Vintages
The winter in 2015 was mild, followed by a rainy spring,
which provided a good amount of water to the vineyards. May was marked by strong
temperature variations, crucial for slowing down the blossoming with bud break then being
comparable to the previous year. Thanks to the appropriate agronomical techniques put in place
(cover crops, no trimmings, shadowing of the bunches) the vines reacted well to the steady
heating trend that took place between July and mid-August. The 2015 harvest will be
remembered for even ripening of the various plots and the consequent compactness of the
picking period - harvest started on September 19 and ended on October 1. The wines feature a
gentle tannic structure, a well-balanced acidity and alcohol and a great mouth filling texture.
