About the Winery:

Located in Piedmont in northwestern Italy, the GAJA winery is widely considered to be one of the greatest estates in the world, producing coveted and collectible labels. The story of the GAJA Winery can be traced to a singular, founding purpose: to produce original wines with a sense of place which reflects the tradition and culture of those who made it.  This philosophy has inspired five generations of impeccable winemaking. GAJA is a pioneer and guardian of tradition, a legacy that continues to reshape the standard for excellence in the world of winemaking today. 

Angelo Gaja was the first to produce single vineyard wines in Piedmont and revolutionized wine making practices in the region, introducing Bordeaux varietals and the use of barriques. GAJA has led Barbaresco to international acclaim and brought about a resurgence of Italian wines more broadly. 

Today, the GAJA Winery owns 240 acres of vineyards in the Barbaresco DOCG (Barbaresco and Treiso) and the Barolo DOCG (Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra). 

About this Wine:

First produced in 1998, the grapes for this wine come from vineyards in both Serralunga and La Morra.

Tasting Notes: 2018 DaGromis has a bright ruby color with garnet highlights. On the nose, fruity with notes of sugar cane and orange underlined by lemongrass. On the palate, delicate showing rich aromas that correspond to the nose and integrate a lush finish. It is juicy, tasty, and balanced.

Vinification: The grapes, coming from the single vineyards, separately undergo fermentation, maceration, and ageing in oak for 12 months. They are then blended and further aged in oak for another 18 months.
