Gaja Sito Moresco, Piedmont Italy

This is an interesting wine. It comes from one of the most prestigious wine makers, Gaja. It comes from the Piedmont region in Italy, an epic area known for Barolo, Barbaresco, Moscato d’Asti, Gavi de Gavi, among others. The Langhe subregion is known for experimentation with international grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, much as the “Super Tuscan” style is known in Tuscany. So what do we get when we combine these factors? A delicate, subtle, polished gem. Medium body, earthy. Nose of earth, roses, dried orange peel. On the palate tree bark, blood orange, tar. This is a blend of Nebbiolo, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
