        Our last few bottles of this legendary wine!


        The Gaja tradition started in 1859 in Piedmont. Five generations of the Gaja family have nurtured and built on the dreams of the previous generation. In 1937 Giovanni Gaja took over the reins of the company and it was at this time the labels changed presenting the famous Gaja name first and foremost on the label as we see it today. Gaja is perhaps one of the most important names in Italian fine wine and is practically synonymous with the region of Piedmont in northwest Italy.

        Tasting notes

        Intense bright ruby red. The nose is perfumed and expressive, with black cherries, liquorice, dark, warm stone and lots of black brambly fruit. Secondary aromas of ripe strawberries and roses, pomegranate and blood orange develop as it opens up. The tannins are lovely and firm – just starting to melt away, but still very present. There is fresh acidity and a lick of saltiness on the finish. Although approachable now and very enjoyable in its sumptuousness, with age it will inevitably develop greater intricacy and detail.


        The grapes, coming from each single vineyard, separately undergo fermentation, maceration and ageing in oak for 12 months. Then they are blended and further aged in oak for another 12 months. 2017 was a small on quantity, but big on quality with Gaja.

        Food pairings

        A great match for a wide selection of red meat dishes, to be sipped and contemplated.
