GAJA! One of Piemonte’s most iconic estates, a true collector’s wine, and simply at the top of the list for the most prestigious and collectible pieces to have in your cellar. We have exactly 5 CASES...and 6 make haste and secure yours today!

97 POINTS! For their “normale” Barbaresco...with a twist. In 2019, because of the devastating impacts of 2018’s hail storms in some of their most prestigious plots, GAJA made the decision to not bottle any of the single crus. That means that all the fruit, from their heralded and famous crus (Sorì San Lorenzo, Costa Russi, and Sorì Tildìn) which regularly fetch $460 to $510+ per bottle on the open market, found its way into this unique and rare bottling in 2019. That’s some special pedigree there, and this wine showcases these top sights admirably.

GAJA was the very first to produce single vineyard wines in Piemonte, and a revolutionary winery for its introduction of Bordeaux varietals to the region, as well as the now commonplace practice of using barrique barrels in the winemaking and aging processes. Our allocation of this rare and coveted bottling is extremely limited, so much so that we were unable to sample a bottle in advance. But we’ve scoured the reviews, from all the top critics, and the feeling seems unanimous...this is something special. Check out the reviews below, but perhaps after you snag a couple of bottles and a magnum for your collection. This should go lightning fast, so do not delay!
