    Offers plum and prune on the nose and palate, with hints of cappuccino. Full-bodied, with velvety, chewy tannins and a long finish. Best after 2011. 4,000 cases made.

    Tasted at the infancy of what will undoubtedly be a long and generous lifespan, Gaja's 2006 Barbaresco shows enormous promise and potential. The wine is elegant, rigidly linear and pristine, with well-defined notes of ripe berry fruit and soft spice. It's an amazing achievement that tastes compact and opulent at the same time. Drink after 2015.

    The 2006 Barbaresco reveals terrific concentration, depth and purity. This is a remarkably soft, harmonious Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja with pretty notes of raspberries, crushed flowers and spices. The wine turns more powerful in the glass, as it gains additional richness, volume and depth, all of which carry through to the polished finish. The wine’s balance is impeccable, and this is easily is one the more harmonious, complete wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
