Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Gaya Nebbiolo 2004 Wine Review
In 1856 the Gaja's opened a small tavern in the town of Barbaresco. Here they started to serve their own wines to complement the food. The success of the winery came through the four generations of Gaja's, with each generation improving the quality of wines. It changed drastically when Angelo joined the family business in 1961. He did this by stopping buying grapes from other local farmers, reducing the yields, identifying the best Barbaresco vineyards and vinifying and bottling them separately. A perfectly delicious, robust red redolent of violets, black cherry, mushroom, earth and cigar box. 4.8/5 Nebbiolo food pairings: rare steak, roast beef, stew, hamburgers, shepherd's pie, venison, bison.
