Good wine, good vintage from Gaja needs 15 years+ for aging and never can be drunk young.
ast testing : November 2008, 2nd testing : Last night
I let it breath in the glass for 3 hours, nice clean, mild woody scent comes along with red rose, lovely Barolo but the texture is tight, dense tannin, dense body...very very young. Anyway, superb structure, good finished.
Light ruby color, with some grey hues. On the nose scents of wild cherries, rose petals, tar and blood. Medium - bodied, with not integrated tannins, high level of acidity and presence of bitterness. Flavors of cherries and bitter orange peel. Short and watery aftertaste.
An Evening with GAIA GAJA @ Por Fin (Por Fin, Coral Gables, Florida): Surprisingly my favorite of the night, from the hot 2003 vintage. Gaia explained that Piemonte was able to withstand(or Weather)the excessive heat, and produce good wines. I've only found the 03 Chateauneuf de Papes and hopefully Nebbiolo to fulfill my expectations for 2003 wines in Europe.This Dagromis is drinking beautifully now, and while it may not the structure of classical Barolo's, it is a joy to drink now, and a relatively good value.
