Community Tasting Notes 55

    November 18, 2021 - Opaque and deep ruby in appearance. Very impressive color.

    Evolving and pronounced nose of black fruits, balsamic notes, soya sauce and even some sweet tobacco and vanilla. Some of the aromas took coaxing and time in the glass suggesting this wine still has plenty of run way ahead of it.

    Medium plus bodied with plenty of acidity and structure. The tannins are starting to soften but are still present. Very strong flavor concentration with a long and savory finish.

    Overall very well done and text book stuff. No rush on this one - will last another decade++ in a cold cellar and I suspect it will develop further.

    September 5, 2021 - This Gaja is a fine Leather Belt. Well, actually the belt is often underrated- but actually it makes a statement and has a purpose. Not many things can do that. It wraps around you, soft, but sturdy and structured. You may smell hints from the tannery, deep and weathered. It stays with you, supports you and complements anything you put with it. Like leather, wine over time develops and changes. As you sip you realize- you are actually in the tannery but eating a dark cherry ice cream cone. The dark cherry begins to drip down off the cone- the leather, the cherry = this wine. The leather belt keeps you together, but the ice cream opens things up and lets loose. We paired this with many flavors- blue cheese, king crab, venison and romaine over the course of the night. It kept our pants up the whole time. However, like we will need to do after such decadence, you probably will want to add some extra holes to this belt to let it open a few extra notches. We have five more bottles, if it’s drinking this well now, like fine leather we expect future bottles to age with a very distinctive character and hopefully not too big of a waistline.

    August 28, 2021 - 3rd of 6 in 2010 tasting. Such an excellent vintage. Ranking was tough, as all 6 Brunello/Chianti were all highly expressive and balanced extremely well. Each wine improved throughout the tasting, so I would suggest a couple hours of decant before digging into the 2010's at this stage.

    July 26, 2021 - In the karaf for 2 hours. Soft but still a little tight. Doesn’t show a second layer as most of the reserva’s does of the ‘10s. Maybe wait for 3 more years.
