    April 6, 2020 - Struggling with words. My last bottle and what a way to go. After 4 hour double decant, beguiling aromas of sweetest rose, raspberry and earthy stuff sets up the taste. Gorgeous sweet tannins intermingle with fresh forest fruits. Best so far. So ready! I still have a Sori San Lorenzo and Barbaresco from same vintage. What joy Gaja brings.

    February 24, 2020 - Cork almost soaked through but came out fine with an ah-so. Doubt a corkscrew would've kept it in one piece.

    Beautiful dusty red cherries, great purity of fruit with lots of depth. A great barolo.

    (Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Conteisa) Tart red fruit with subtle meat flavors on nose; gorgeous, plush, spicy, earthy, tart red fruit and plum palate with good acidity, and young yet; medium-plus finish
