Gaja Sperss Barolo Nebbiolo 1997

$449

A virtually perfect effort is the 1997 Sperss...which represents the essence of truffles, earth, and black cherries in its striking aromatics and multidimensional, opulent, full-bodied palate. The acidity seems low because of the huge glycerin levels and prodigious concentration of fruit, but I suspect it is normal in the scheme of oenological measurement. This profound wine requires 3-4 years of cellaring, and should age well for 30-35 years. Robert Parker

Still kickin after all these years. The tax man cometh, the tax man taketh away, but he can't have my Gaja.

A spectacular Barolo that could continue to age for a few more years. Tastes of cherry, slight tobacco, and rich flavor that just filled the mouth. I need to find a few more of these. Mistakenly typed 1979 vintage but this was a 1997 as shown in the photo.
