The Story

14 vineyards situated in the municipality of Barbaresco. The land, at a height between 250 and 330 metres above the sea level, covers a surface of 21.4 hectares. The plants are 40 years old on average.The grapes coming from each single vineyard, seprately undergo fermentation, maceration and ageing in oak for 12 months. Then they are blended and further aged in oak for another 12 months.

Wine Information

Fermentation: The grapes from each lot are fermented separately in stainless-steel vats for approximately 20 days, depending on the vintage. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine is racked to barriques, where malolactic fermentation takes place.

Aging: After fermentation is complete, the separate lots are then aged for one year in barriques (20% new, with a balance of one and two year old casks). The 14 lots are then blended and racked to large Slavonian oak casks ranging in age from five to fifteen years.

Barbaresco 2009 was very aromatic from the start, with focused smoky, floral aromas. A wine with great finesse, very precise tannins, and yet powerful. An excellent, long finish. A quintessential Nebbiolo from Piemonte: tannic but elegant, and flavors of rosepetals and rosehip.

Gaja Barbaresco 2009 / Viscous deep purple colour. Closed, but a little bit raisiny and steely on the nose. Still young and not yet harmonized on the palate, with some oak grip still apparent. But the balance is there and suggests ageworthiness. Too young to drink now with real pleasure. 2020–2025+ 93 points
  • 93p
Bright, moderately pale tawny red colour. Vibrant floral nose with brambles, cherries, spices and a touch of waxiness. Racy acidity with soften tannins give a vivid structure to the wine. Sweet fruit flavours of root vegetables and ripe cherries. Silky long aftertaste is highlighted by floral aromas.
