Gaja

Barbaresco would not be the same without Gaja’s iconic reputation. This venerable domaine not only drew worldwide attention to the region, but they have also shown the quality that is attainable not just with Nebbiolo, but with “outside” varieties as well. Their story started over 150 years ago, when Giovanni Gaja founded the winery in 1859 to complement the food in his restaurant. Today, the company is managed by the fourth and fifth generations, Angelo Gaja and his children. Over the years, the Gaja name has grown to represent not only exceptional quality, but unique and intriguing flavors that are unlike any others from the region. The single-vineyards are a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera, like all the wine produced before the introduction of the DOCG denomination. This denomination was established in 1966, and it is mandatory for the wines to be 100% Nebbiolo. For this reason, he declassified most of his single-vineyard wines and took the denomination of Langhe Nebbiolo DOC instead, in order to reach the specific style he desired. Gaja currently produces a total of twelve different Piemontese wines, as well as, seven Tuscan wines from Montalcino and Bolgheri. ...

Grapes

The King of the Piedmont grapes, Nebbiolo makes some of the greatest reds in the world under the denominations of Barolo and Barbaresco. Thin-skinned, it produces wines that are light in colour but that pack a punch in terms of structure. Also high in acidity, they are renowned for their longevity and for many generations, they were aged for years in oak casks to tame their power. Today, ageing time has shortened in order to retain a greater amount of fruit. In addition to the area around Alba, it is found in other areas of northern Italy, such as Gattinara, where it is called Spanna. Like Sangiovese, there are some New World plantings but as of yet, their wines do not dazzle like those of Italy. ...
Merlot is considered by many as the most luxurious red grape as it is known for its rich palate, velvety tannins and ample mouthfeel. Its home is originally France’s Bordeaux region and is responsible for Pomerol’s distinguished personality and firm grip (due to its unique clay soil), it also reigns supreme in St. Emilion where it provides its fleshy opulence. This seductress also has a claim to fame in some of Italy’s top bottlings, such as Masseto, Galatrona and Le Macchiole. ...
One of the world’s most revered grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon competes with Merlot as the two most planted red varieties. Known for its noble persona, its deep colour, full-bodied structure and telltale notes of pencil lead and blackcurrant, it can be found as the main grape in Bordeaux’s main Médoc blends, but is also highly regarded in Italian Super Tuscan blends and as a 100% varietal wine in the New World’s finest areas, such as California’s Napa Valley and Australia’s McLaren Vale. ...

Piedmont

Piedmont

One of the greatest wine regions in the world in terms of wine quality (and its renowned cuisine and white truffles), Piedmont is also home to Slow Food, further indicating how essential both good wine and food are to this northern region. Most vineyards are planted on hillside terraces that rise and descend numerous villages. Its most important grape in terms of quality is Nebbiolo, the moderately thin-skinned variety that is capable of producing lighter coloured, but powerful and spellbinding Barolos and Barbarescos that beautifully accompany much of its unique cuisine. However, numerous other grapes such as Barbera and Dolcetto are also noteworthy. Whites can also be unique and delicious and include floral and peachy Arneis, Chablis-like Gave and the off-dry, semi-sparkling Moscato d’Asti.
