Gaja Sperss 2011

SKU 15061


Color: Ruby red. Aroma: The nose shows dark, pure and very focused fruit with classic hints of tar, licorice, and a touch of truffles. Taste: Sperss displays the austere character typical of Serralunga terroir: deep structure and lots of ripe tannins. Dense, massive yet seamless, the beautifully integrated wine possesses low acidity as well as a terrific finish.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of menthol, tobacco, juicy black fruit, grilled herb and a whiff of truffle unfold in the glass. Made with Nebbiolo from the firm's Serralunga holdings and a drop of Barbera, it has a pristine palate that delivers dark black cherry, licorice and black pepper alongside firm but fine tannins. It's still young and austere so give it time to develop fully. Drink 2020-2045.

Wine SpectatorA mix of licorice, black cherry, vanilla, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors marks this intense red, which stays fresh and long, showing balance overall. All the elements are there, just needs time. Best from 2019 through 2033. 2,000 cases made.
