THE WINERY – GAJA

Angelo Gaja is without a question one of the biggest names in Italian wine. Born in 1940, in 1961 he took over the family estate in the Langhe hills in the Piedmont region that was founded in 1859. Today, he oversees around 100 hectares of vineyards and does not buy any grapes externally. Gaja was a key contributor to the international reputation of some of the greatest Piedmont wines, with the Barbaresco and Barolo wines in particular. He set himself apart from the competition thanks to new vinification and ageing techniques, which were deemed revolutionary at the time as it broke away from customary regional practices: selecting the very best plots, reducing yields, ageing in new French oak barrels instead of Yugoslavian oak casks. Today, the best of his Barbaresco plots produce some of Italy’s best wines (Sori Tildin, Sori San Lorenzo and Costa Russi). He was also the first to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc instead of Nebbiolo, going against the advice of his peers.

LANGHE ROSSO SITO MORESCO

The Langhe Sito Moresco, born from the happy blend of Nebbiolo with a part of Cabernet sauvignon and Merlot, is a balanced, perfumed and elegant wine, with fine and sumptuous tannins on the finish … a true harmony!
