Description
 
The Gaja family settled in the Piedmont region in northwest Italy in the mid-seventeenth century. Four generations of Gajas have been producing wines in Piedmont’s Langhe hills since 1859, the year Giovanni Gaja, a local grape grower, founded the Gaja Winery in Barbaresco. Giovanni’s son, Angelo (grandfather of today’s Angelo Gaja), was blessed with ambition and vision. Clotilde Rey, whom he married in 1905, inspired him to establish the tradition to which the Gajas have adhered ever since – total dedication to uncompromising quality.

The delightful 2013 Langhe Alteni di Brassica (Sauvignon Blanc) shows fullness and ripeness with bright aromas of exotic fruit, white flower, wild sage and crushed white stone. This was a slightly cooler vintage and you get a beautiful sense of varietal pureness, focus and sharpness as a result. Melon and white rose make for a fitting close. The mouthfeel is lean, but not to be underestimated. The wine leaves a long, crisp sensation on the palate. Wine Advocate 90 (2013)
