James Suckling just announced his top five picks for 2012 Barbaresco and GAJA is #3 on the list!
94 points – GAJA Barbaresco 2012
So perfumed with black cherry, strawberry and flowers. Tar undertones. Brick, too. Some minerals. Stone fruit. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Barbaresco with clarity and finesse. This has some wine from the top crus of Gaja such as Sori Tildin and Sori San Lorenzo in the blend because they were not bottled. Drink or hold.—JAMES SUCKLING (Oct 2015)
