Tasting Notes

Vinous – 94

Gaja’s 2015 Barbaresco is gorgeous. Deep, pliant and resonant, the 2015 exudes class from the very first taste. Today, the aromatics are not especially open or expressive, but it is the wine’s depth and overall sense of harmony that really carry the day. Hints of orange peel, spice and rosewater give the 2015 an exotic aromatic top register that is hugely appealing. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. The 2015 is a wonderfully complete and harmonious wine, but it really does need a few years in the cellar to fully unwind. [Antonio Galloni, 19/10/2018]

JancisRobinson.com – 17/20

Plenty of perfume on the nose, dried cranberry, tobacco leaf, and bitter-cherry notes. Really quite light in body, with strident acid and very finely buffed tannic grip ” firm but approachable. Delicate aromatic quality, with a juniper note to finish. A little dilute, but the quality of flavours is very good. (RH) [18/09/2018]

Robert Parker – 93

“The 2015 Barbaresco was to be bottled a week after I tasted this sample for review. Gaia Gaja was waiting for the right moon before commencing bottling. This vintage is not unlike the 2005 growing season that saw a good amount of rain in spring and scorching heat in the summer. The risk of downy mildew made vintners extra vigilant. Although the 2015 vintage was not ideal for color fixing Nebbiolo (indeed, this wine is slightly less intense in terms of its color saturation), it did prove an important year for power, structure and dry extract. This is a full and generous expression with a fine, loose texture and rich fruit flavors.” [Monica Larner, 29/06/2018]
