Angelo Gaja and the wines from the GAJA winery hardly need any introduction. The Gaja family settled in Piedmont as early as the middle of the seventeenth century. Since then, 5 generations have alternated in wine production since Giovanni Gaja founded the winery in Barbaresco, in the territory of the Langhe, in 1859.
Angelo Gaja followed his father Giovanni as head of the family enterprise in the early 1960s. At the time blending grapes from different vineyards and villages was the practice in Piedmont. Some wineries may have even used grapes from outside the region. A few winemakers including Angelo Gaja, Bruno Giacosa, Beppe Colla of Prunotto, and Alfredo Currado at Vietti started making wines from a single vineyard.
Under the leadership of Angelo Gaja, the wines of the family-owned winery have proved to be innovative and, at times revolutionary. For most of his life, he has been a visionary man on a mission: To do what it takes to explore ways to improve the quality of his wines.

Tasting Notes: Bright, intense, and lifted nose with incredible aromatic complexity: violets, balsamic and herbal notes. rich, juicy, and intense with terrific depth and power and a fabulously long finish. Sweet smoke, cherries, and high-quality oak wrap this glorious package together and it finishes bright, focused, and crisp with perfect acidity.
