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 violet color atypical of Nebbiolo but reflective of the vintage where fullness and richness are even present to the eye. The wine has bold notes of blackberry, cherry, blood orange, and bergamot with a touch of flintiness. Medium-structured with lots of juiciness and harmony on the palate all lead to well-balanced acidity and tannin structure with a long finish.  Enjoy this with a mushroom and sausage pizza, meat stuffed ravioli or juicy burger.  

Method

The wine is named after Moresco, the previous owner of the parcel in Gaja’s Pajorè vineyard in the village of Treiso, from which the majority of these grapes are sourced.  Some of the grapes are from the Serralunga village.  Gaja has been making this wine since 1991.  It is a blend of the two beloved Piemontese red grapes, Barbera and Nebbiolo.  The two varieties ferment and macerate separately for
three weeks. After the malolactic fermentation, they are blended and then aged in  oak for 12 months
