The Gaja winery is synonomous with excellence and innovation in the world of fine wines.  The winery was established in Barbaresco, in the Langhe region of Piemonte in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja and has grown from a humble family venture to an internationally acclaimed estate and recognizable brand.  Gaja’s wines and reputation has contributed to the popularity and success of other producers from this part of Italy.   

Gaja’s roots are in the Langhe region, where they cultivate about 250 acres of vineyards the districts of Barbaresco and Barolo. In the 1994, the Gaja family expanded its winemaking footprint by acquiring the Pieve Santa Restituta estate in Tuscany’s Montalcino area to craft Brunello.  Shortly thereafter they ventured into the southern Tuscan Maremma and founded Ca’Marcanda, in Bolgheri where the 150 acres are planted to a diverse range of international grape varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah.  

Gaja is commitment to quality, tradition, and continuous innovation.

Tasting Notes

A beautiful imtense yellow gold in the glass.  The nose is layered and complex with floral notes; wisteria, lemon balm and acacia, stone fruit; peach and an hint of salinity.  The palate is concentrated and fresh; fleshy fruit flavours are balanced by citrus and minerality that carries onto a long satisfying finish.  Enjoy this with shellfish like lobster or scallops, or a more Italian themed meal like a cream based pasta or veal scallopini in a tangy lemon sauce.  

Method

Predominantly Chardonnay with a touch of Sauvignon Blanc, Rossj-Bass exemplifies Gaja’s mastery in crafting elegant white wines. Produced from grapes grown in several estate-owned vineyards. The Rossj vineyard, planted in 1984, is named for Angelo Gaja’s younger daughter Rossana (Rossj). “Bass” is Piedmontese for the Italian “basso”, meaning low, which is a reference to the low lying vineyard position.  Pheasants are featured on Rossj-Bass’ label to commemorate these birds that inhabit the forests nearby.
