Gaja Sito Moresco 2018 is elegant and superbly made. A blend of Nebbiolo, Cabernet and Merlot grapes from the Langhe, Piedmont wine region and produced by Angelo Gaja, one of the rock stars of the wine world and an iconic figure for Italian winemaking. He's credited with making Barbaresco world famous as a robust red wine from northern Italy. Full-bodied, smooth and juicy with ripe red currant, black currant, fine herb and spicy, smoky flavours harmonious on the palate. Each variety was vinified separately prior to blending and then matured in oak barrels for 1 year. A good cellaring candidate, drink or hold.

Food pairings: mature cheese, rare cuts of meat, risotto with mushrooms.

Blissful Blue Cheese Wine

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
