Gaja Barbaresco 1996

GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE:
IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR AND STOCKED IN CALIFORNIA

Classic Gaja Barbaresco in a top year for Barbaresco, these 1996 bottles were flown directly from a Gaja fanatic’s carefully tended cellar in Milano, and are now resting quietly in my temp- and humidity-controlled cellar in Paso Robles, California.

Rich and full-bodied with ripe blackberries, rich dark cherries, violetsspices, and an earthy undertone that’s simply wonderful.

Gaja’s Barbaresco wines pair wonderfully with good fatty meats; think grilled ribeyes, hearty beef stews, and juicy pork sausages. Flash roasted leg of lamb served rare would go great with Angelo’s fabulous vino.

Note to Collectors — These bottles traveled first class by air, direct from a Gaja fanatic’s well-tended cellar in Milano. I personally inspected these bottles and believe the provenance is top-rated.
Recommendation: It’s best to ship these by air if you’re outside the west coast — select expedited shipping at check-out.
