Gaja Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1996

$390

GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE: IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR AND STOCKED IN CALIFORNIA Classic Gaja Barbaresco in a top year for Barbaresco, these 1996 bottles were flown directly from a Gaja fanatic's carefully tended cellar in Milano, and are now resting quietly in my temp- and humidity-controlled cellar in Paso Robles, California. Rich and full-bodied with ripe blackberries, rich dark cherries, violets, spices, and an earthy undertone that's simply wonderful. Gaja's Barbaresco wines pair wonderfully with good fatty meats; think grilled ribeyes, hearty beef stews, and juicy pork sausages. Flash roasted leg of lamb served rare would go great with Angelo's fabulous vino. Note to Collectors — These bottles traveled first class by air, direct from a Gaja fanatic's well-tended cellar in Milano. I personally inspected these bottles and believe the provenance is top-rated. Recommendation: It's best to ship these by air if you're outside the west coast — select expedited shipping at check-out. Alcohol: 13.5% Bottle Size: 750 ml

A great barbaresco, still closed after 7 hours on a carafe , young on the nose, red cherries, strong tannins, this needs time, atleast 10-15 years.

Aromatics were incredible, but wouldn't give anything up on the palate until 2.5 hours open. Still a baby
