Details

The centerpiece of the portfolio, GAJA Barbaresco is a testament to the Gaja family's historic commitment to the appellation and its belief that Barbaresco stands proudly with the great growing regions of the world. The GAJA winery stopped sourcing fruit from other growers in 1961 in order to ensure the utmost quality in its wines. GAJA Barbaresco is produced using grapes grown in 14 vineyards in the village of Barbaresco, fermented in stainless steel vats for approximately 20 days. Upon completion, the wine is racked to barriques, where malolactic fermentation takes place. The separate lots are then aged for one year in barriques (20% new, with a balance of one and two year old casks). The 14 lots are then blended and racked to large Slavonian oak casks ranging in age from five to fifteen years.
