In a nutshell:
A full, smooth and juicy Piedmontese red blend from the famous Gaja estate.
This maybe one of the famous Gaja estate's more entry level wines it's, nevertheless, immensely satisfying and everything you'd expect from one of Italy's iconic producers. It blends Nebbiolo from the Barbaresco region with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which is quite an interesting mix. There are attractive redcurrant and cassis hints on the nose with some complex spicy and herbal notes also coming through. The palate is full, smooth and juicy with ripe fruits supported by complex spice, smoke and cedar. And, overall it's fresh with a vibrant acidity and smooth, silky tannins.
When to drink:
Being both juicy and savoury this is a perfect complement to rich red meat dishes.
