Barbaresco docg 2013


Cellar that, along with a few others, has changed the history of the Piedmontese and Italian wine world. Born in Barbaresco in 1859 by the founder Giovanni Gaja and since then it has always stood out for the "obsessive" search for quality. Piedmont and its Langhe, extraordinary land for the pedological and climatic characteristics that make the cultivation of grapes optimal and land that has forged men and farmers dedicated to the cultivation of vines and their grapes. Angelo, son of the founder, he had the merit of renewing his father's ideas, introducing over the years 60 new production settings: has decided to lower the yield per hectare of the plants to obtain an even higher quality of the grapes; a more targeted and controlled use of woods starting from returning to using the large barrel more; introduced the use of very long corks because he understood that, thanks to them, their wines would have had a better yield over time. Today again, in the wake of tradition, the whole Gaja family is involved in consolidating and developing that idea of ​​the company and wines that Angelo Gaja has built in recent decades: they all work in the cellar, from children to grandchildren…generations united in carrying on with strength and respect, one of the most famous wineries in the world synonymous with history and quality.
