Gaja's classic Barbaresco is gorgeous in 2010, showing an intense perfume of violet, earth and ripe red fruits punctuated by balsamic notes. The palate delivers rich wild cherry notes layered with mint, cinnamon and eucalyptus. This is structured and elegant and will develop more complexity over time. Drink this after 2018.

Very aromatic with strawberries, flowers and cherries. Some sawdust character from the wood barrels. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a creamy, cherry and cedar undertone. Very elegant. Better in 2015.

Tinged with new oak that lends a spicy impression, this red evokes cherry, menthol and underbrush notes. Supple and beautifully balanced, with a long finish. Best from 2015 through 2025. 2,100 cases made.
