Gaja Sperss Barolo 2014 Magnum

The 2014 Sperss features a classic Serralunga nose, earthly and savoury with pure notes of coals, tobacco, juniper, and sap. In the palate the wine is tense, loaded with energy that will need serious ageing to fully develop. Impressive fruit concentration, with sweet red berries – raspberry, wild strawberry, red currant, plum – blood orange, bark, liquorice. Acidity and tannins lift this wine to its freshest expression.

Vineyard
The Sperss vineyard is located in the Marenca-Rivette subarea in the municipality of Serralunga. The land, arranged as
an amphitheatre on a surface of 12 hectares, consists of very
compact clayey-calcareous marls and has south and southwest exposure with an average altitude of 370 m above the
sea level. The vines are 55 years old on average.
Winemaking
Fermentation and maceration for around three weeks
followed by ageing in oak for 30 months.
Vintages
The 2014 vintage will be remembered as one of the most
complex and yet surprising of the last ten years. A mild winter
with no snow was followed by an equally dry spring with
flowering 10 days earlier than usual. The summer of was cold
and wet and this peculiar humidity required intense work in the vineyard in term of canopy
management, disease monitoring and grassing management. The first two weeks of September
were drier but colder than usual, with considerable diurnal temperature variation then the
weather improved with long, sunny afternoons which led to complete phenolic ripeness of the
grapes. The harvest began on October 4 and ended on October 10 and the grapes brought into
the winery were healthy with thick and ripe skins. The fermentations started easily and
proceeded slowly and steadily.
Food match
Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
A great match with wild game or Gran Padano cheese
