Sito Moresco Gaja Langhe 2016
This mythical estate is one of the greatest ambassadors of Piedmont, and even Italian wines. Now helped by his three children, Angelo Gaja continues to develop deep, elegant and balanced wines which are certainly part of the Italian elite. A blend of Nebbiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this Langhe is aged for 12 months in casks. Remarkably supple, it opens on beautiful notes of cherry and tobacco, then adds cedar and dried flowers to its profile.
