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:

A blend of Nebbiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the three varieties ferment and macerate separately for three weeks. After the malolactic fermentation, they are blended and then aged in oak for 18 months.

The name derives from Moresco, the previous owner of the parcel in Pajorè vineyard which was purchased in 1979. the wine has been produced since 1991.

93 Points - Natalie MacLean
“From Angelo Gaja, Sito Moresco 2019 is an elegant, beautifully crafted and structured red wine blend of Nebbiolo, Cabernet and Merlot grapes from the Langhe, Piedmont wine region. Full and flavourful on the palate with rose petals, red berry, cassis, plum, savoury herbs finishing long with a kiss of smoke. Pour with an equally juicy roast of pork. Drink or hold. A good cellaring candidate for 5-plus years.”
