Gaja Offer - Sold Out, please enquire
24 April 2012
This offer has expired. Please contact staff for further details.
“As Gaja is one of the most celebrated names in wine worldwide, it is particularly difficult to find adjectives and descriptions that have not already been used to describe it. Still, it is a fact that Gaja wines are always absolutely exemplary in style and seductiveness. Tasted young, they display an immediately recognisable exuberance and generosity but it is only after appropriate ageing that they develop their full potential in terms of depth and complexity” Gambero Rosso Italian Wines 2011
“One thing you can say about Gaja’s wines, however: at least when you hock the house to buy a bottle, you know you are in for a bloody good drink”.
Nicolas Belfrage ‘Barolo to Valpolicella’
What more can be said… we know Angelo’s wines are expensive but as Nicolas mentions, they are utterly delicious. They’ll never be a Bruno Giacosa or Giacomo Conterno but nor do they want/need to. Their power is met with grace in a way so few other wineries can get close to.
Please see below an offer for their new releases and if you scroll all the way down, you’ll see some older vintages on offer too.
There’s a lot to look at and a lot to take in… peruse away.

Decanter Magazine… “Another 2008 vintage saved by an Indian summer. Expect intense flavours but a more elegant structure than last year. Low yielding harvest.”
2008 Barbaresco: The 2008 Barbaresco emerges from the glass with sweet red cherries, spices, flowers and licorice. This is an attractive Barbaresco with excellent depth and a firm, tannic spine that is very nicely integrated with the fruit. The 2008 isn’t a blockbuster, but it should drink well with minimum cellaring. This is a classic, linear Barbaresco endowed with terrific energy and focus. Right now the 2008 seems to be holding its cards close to the vest. I would not be surprised to see it show even better in a few years’ time. 93 points, The Wine Advocate Issue #197
2008 Langhe Costa Russi: The 2008 Costa Russi is absolutely gorgeous. Sweet dark cherries, tar, licorice and new leather are some of the aromas and flavors that take shape in the glass. The 2008 is a firm Costa Russi, with less of the seductiveness of most years, but equally fine balance. Ideally it needs a few more years in bottle, but it is striking. The finish shows terrific intensity. The typical juiciness of the site is framed by the firm tannins of the year. Everything that makes Costa Russi such an engaging wine is here, but in a slightly smaller-scaled package than in the very finest years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. 94 points, The Wine Advocate Issue #197
2008 Langhe Sorì Tildin: The 2008 Sori Tildin is impressive. I confess I wasn’t quite prepared for the assault of fruit and tannins here. Sori Tildin is so often a graceful, elegant wine, but that is not the case in 2008. That’s not to say elegance is missing, but this is a big, big wine with tons of intensity and richness, all woven together beautifully. It’s tough to find a comparison with a previous vintage, as this is a singular Tildin. The flavors are familiar if a touch on the dark side, but the structure is closer than that of Sori San Lorenzo. Flowers, tar, leather and licorice wrap around the palate. This is a fabulous showing and a great wine in the making. 96 points, The Wine Advocate Issue #197
2008 Langhe Sorì San Lorenzo: Gaja’s 2008 Sori San Lorenzo is impeccable from start to finish. The 2008 is a round, seamless San Lorenzo with seemingly no hard edges and terrific overall balance. The signature aromas and flavors are there, as is the wine’s typical gravitas, yet the 2008 has an extra level of sweetness, its size notwithstanding. The wine possesses striking inner perfume and fabulous overall balance. The sheer excitement of the very finest years isn’t quite there, but this is a fine bottle just the same. An explosive, juicy finish rounds things out in style. 95 Points, The Wine Advocate Issue #197
