2016 GAJA PIEVE SANTA RESTITUTA BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO (375ML)

Gaja is one of the biggest names in Italian wine, famous for a fusion of modern and traditional winemaking, continually impressing wine critics and collectors from all over the world since their early beginnings 250 years ago. In the 1960s and ’70s, Angelo Gaja was one of the first winemakers in Italy to begin experimenting with new French oak barriques that today contribute to Gaja’s signature house-style.

Brunello di Montalcino is famous for the Brunello clone of Sangiovese, known for more body, multiple layers of concentrated flavors, and impressive longevity that by law must be aged for a minimum of two years in barrel and four years total before release. Master of Wine Greg Sherwood has rated Gaja’s 2016 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino as one of the estate’s most outstanding vintages, with beautifully perfumed aromatics and intensely complex flavors that pleasantly linger into a long finish.

2018 GAJA CA’ MARCANDA MAGARI

Gaja is one of the world’s great wine producers, known for their risk-taking and having outstanding consistency of superior quality since 1859. Ca’Marcanda, or “house of endless negotiations,” is the name of the second property purchased by the Gaja family in 1996, after 18 trips to complete the negotiations for buying the Estate.

Ca’Marcanda, located in the Bolgheri region of Tuscany, is planted with Bordeaux varieties allowing Gaja to produce Magari, a sultry Tuscan blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot. The vineyard blocks for this blend on the fertile hillsides of Terre Brune, or loamy, clay-rich soils known to provide depth, richness, and minerality to wines, and with Gaja’s top wines selling for more than $500, the Magari is an absolute steal.

2015 GAJA “SITO MORESCO” LANGHE NEBBIOLO

Sometimes taking risks pays off… Angelo Gaja took many risks when he chose to declassify his highly regarded Barolo and Barbaresco wines and simply label them Langhe, a lower tier classification.  In doing so he gained the flexibility to produce the absolute best wines possible, without having to abide by any restrictions set by regional Italian Wine laws.  Now, one of the most Iconic wine producers in the world, and considered by many to produce the best wines in Italy, Angelo is regarded as a pioneer in the way he produces wines.  Always compelling with deeply penetrating flavors and enticing aromas that are both riveting and complex.  Angelo’s wines wrap your mind, body and soul in sheer delight and at $54.99/btl you’ll want as much of that feeling as you can fit in your cellar.

Merging Nebbiolo, Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the Sito Moresco is powerful, yet refined, detailing notes of red current, plum, tart raspberry,  cherry pipe tobacco and leather. While Gaja’s top wines can fetch well over $500 per bottle, the Sito Moresco is a stunning value at $54.99.  The 2015 is extra special because in 2015 Angelo removed the Barbera from his single vineyard wines, giving it a home in Sito Moresco and catapulting the quality of the wine.  The 2015 absolutely dropped the mic at our tasting… Trust me on this one…

2016 MUSSO RIO SORDO BARBARESCO

Barbaresco is Italy’s other Iconic wine that’s produced from the Nebbiolo grape, and if Barolo is the King, then Barbaresco is the Queen, having a slightly more elegant structure.  Similar to top Barolo’s, Barbesco can fetch astronomical prices… Just look at some of Angelo Gaja’s Cru Barbaresco’s which can easily top $800 per bottle.  Musso is a tiny producer in Barbaresco that happens to be next-door to Gaja, and their single vineyard Barbarescos competes with the absolute best wines in Italy.  Of course at under fifty bucks, it’s not even fair..

2016 PODERE BRIZIO ROSSO DI MONTALCINO

Rosso di Montalcino not only tips the scales in terms of value, but it also provides one of the most pure and vivid interpretations of Sangiovese Grosso grapes grown in Italy’s iconic Montalcino region.  Rossos are only required to be aged for one year before release, which often results in a fresher and more vibrant Sangiovese that can also be enjoyed young. Podere Brizio’s 95 Point, 2016 Rosso di Montalcino arose from a parcel that previously went into Gaja’s famed Pieve di Santa Restituta…  It’s an absolutely stunning interpretation of Sangiovese and it was guided from grape to bottle by renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini, who was named one of the 5 best consulting winemakers in the world by Decanter magazine…

Arising from soils consisting of sandstone and rocky marl, both contribute to the wine’s structure and minerality.  Then at Brizio’s state-of-the-art winemaking facility, it was fermented then spent 12 months in un-toasted French oak barrels, producing a wine that is deeply perfumed with bright cherry, floral violets, Asian spice, and subtle hints of truffle.  On the palate this wine is rich and opulent, with remarkable energy and persistence.  I strongly recommend a case or two of this vastly over-achieving Italian Red…

2016 MUSSO PORA VINEYARD BARBARESCO

Barbaresco is Italy’s other Iconic wine that’s produced from the Nebbiolo grape, and if Barolo is the King, then Barbaresco is the Queen, having a slightly more elegant structure.  Similar to top Barolo’s, Barbesco can fetch astronomical prices… Just look at some of Angelo Gaja’s Cru Barbaresco’s which can easily top $800 per bottle.  Musso is a tiny producer in Barbaresco that happens to be next-door to Gaja, and their single vineyard Pora Barbaresco competes with the absolute best wines in Italy.  Of course at under fifty bucks, it’s not even fair…  Pora is a historic 2 1/2 hectare vineyard that’s laden with clay and limestone.  The vineyard is absolutely ideal for ripening Nebbiolo grapes and produces fruit of regal qualities.  With double 97 Point scores, this could go really fast…

The climate in Barbaresco is slightly milder than neighboring Barolo and the wines are noticeably less tannic and exude elegance.  The wines are stunningly complex and incredibly deep and full bodied, and those that come from some of the top Cru Vineyards like Pora can have brilliant levels of detail.  If you’d like to take your Italian collection to an even higher level with a super-highly rated Italian wine that won’t break the bank, this is it…
