Barbaresco 2016

Barbaresco DOCG

75cl bottle

The Nebbiolo vine is influenced by the small varieties of soil types. The blend of the grapes from 14 different vineyards highlights different terroirs, resulting in a sophisticated and well-balanced wine with scents of soft fruits, flowers, gentle spices and mineral notes and dense yet graceful structure.
Each GAJA Barbaresco has a persistent finish with superior tannins appropriate for a long bottle ageing.

Description

Vineyards

There are 14 vineyards in the municipality of Barbaresco. The 21.4-hectare land is at a height between 250 and 330m above the sea level and the plants are 40 years old on average.

 

Harvest

This is a potentially historic vintage. In 2016, we had a late start with cool and rainy weather in the spring which generated a warmer weather during the summer with wider diurnal temperature shifts compared to 2015. We had no constant heat spikes followed by cold evenings. These conditions are perfect for Nebbiolo.

 

Winery

The grapes that coming from each 14 vineyards are fermented, macerated and aged separately in oak for one year. Afterwards they are blended together and aged again in oak for another year.

 

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
  • Mature Strong Cheeses

Well placed to complement game such as wild duck or pheasant
