2017 gaja, barolo, conteisa
Why We're Buying
The Gaja Langhe Conteisa Barolo comes from the oldest vines in Conteisa, a vineyard in Monforte d'Alba. Even in youth, the red wine is concentrated with melodic aromas of spice and cherries, making it a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts alike. It also returned 38.5% on investment from 2017 to 2021.
Predominantly from within the cru of Cerequio on the border between Barolo and La Morra, Conteisa has been produced since 1996. The 2017 Barolo Conteisa has ripe aromas of red cherry, cinnamon, and licorice. The palate is forward and gushing with raspberry leather, iron-rich earth, and tobacco leaf. This is the most generous and giving of the three wines in this tasting, yet at the same time remains noble. Drink 2022-2042.
