Dear Wine Lover,
We are glad to offer you for the first time the last vintage of Sito Moresco 2010, one of the best value for money wines from the most famous producer of the Piedmont region, Angelo Gaja.
Gaja Estates, as you surely know, is the most renowned Italian wine producer from the Piedmont region! Based in the district of Langhe and renowned for having introduced several revolutionary practices for the vinification of Nebbiolo, Angelo Gaja has become famous worldwide for his Barbaresco and Barolo. He also managed to introduce Cabernet Sauvignon in the vineyard of Piedmont making the wines become "the finest wines ever made in Italy", according to the Wine Spectator, and a model for the Piedmont producers.
Sito Moresco, a blend of Nebbiolo, Merlot, and Cabernet which is aged 18 months in barriques, is simply amazing for its price and quality. In our opinion Sito Moresco 2010 is the ideal wine for daily drinking and buying some bottles is a good opportunity to have some good value wines of Angelo Gaja in the cellar. For who doesn’t know it yet, what a best occasion to discover this prestigious producer?

We are also pleased to offer the following top wines from Gaja:
37.5 cl Barbaresco - Gaja 2009 CHF 55.00 (CHF 59.40 VAT Included)
75.0 cl Barbaresco - Gaja 2009 CHF 115.00 (CHF 124.20 VAT Included)
93+ Parker: The 2009 Barbaresco is absolutely remarkable for the way it carersses the palate with endless layers of sweet red fruit. Will the 2009 shut down in bottle? Truth is, I don’t know, but the wine is exceptionally beautiful and polished from the very first taste. Ripe, red berries, crushed flowers and deeply spiced notes are woven into an intricate fabric of indescribable class. I am not sure how Angelo Gaja and his team do it, but this is a super-impressive wine in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
75.0 cl Barolo Conteisa - Gaja 2008 CHF 148.00 (CHF 159.85 VAT Included)
97 Parker: the 2008 Conteisa is a knock-out. It boasts the most striking inner sweetness and perfume imaginable, a quality shared by a handful of legendary Piemonte wines. Juicy red cherries, spices, hard candy and mint caress the palate in this extraordinary, breathtaking wine. The balance of aromatics, fruit, acidity and structure are simply captivating. The 2008 is of course far too young to deliver maximum pleasure, but it is impossible to miss its pedigree. This is a fabulous showing from Gaja. Conteisa is often outstanding, but the 2008 will go down as one of the great all-time vintages for this wine. Conteisa is made from Gaja's plots in the Cerequio vineyard of La Morra. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2043.
37.5 cl Sperss - Gaja 2008 CHF 72.00 (CHF 77.75 VAT Included)
75.0 cl Sperss - Gaja 2008 CHF 145.00 (CHF 156.60 VAT Included)
96+ Parker: The 2008 Sperss is exotic, dark and totally seductive. Black cherries, mint, licorice, flowers, spices and juniper berries meld together in the glass, all supported by firm, insistent tannins. Today the Sperss has begun to shut down in bottle. It isn't anywhere near as expressive as the Conteisa, but that will come in time. There is so much to look forward to, but readers will have to be patient. In time, the 2008 Sperss will be yet another viscerally thrilling wine. Sperss is made from the Marenca and Rivette vineyards in Serralunga. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048.
