GAJA Barbaresco 1978 Revisited by James Suckling, 37 Years Later

gajbarb-nvlabel300dpiJames Suckling recently revisted the 1978 Barbaresco by GAJA after having visited the Gajas this past summer to taste their 2011 Barbarescos. Angelo and Gaia had said, they were hoping the “2014 might be remembered as a 1978.”

Excerpt:

I tasted Gaja’s 1978 Barbaresco in Hong Kong last November, and it showed tea leaf, prunes and hints of leather. Whilst it was dry and tannic, it was also fully and juicy, making for an intense and still highly enjoyable wine, albeit one constrained by the winemaking techniques of the day. 91 points
