Winemaking

Fermentation and maceration for around three weeks followed by ageing in oak for 30 months

"With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2011 Langhe Sperss is a wine of profound beauty. This is a velvety and caressing expression with dark fruit layers followed by kirsch, cassis, leather, balsam herb and white truffle. The Gaja family decided to move their bottling date forward in order to preserve the integrity and freshness of fruit in this warm vintage. This move has helped to avoid overripe sensations. In fact, Langhe Sperss seems fresh and tonic. This bodes exceptionally well for its aging potential." The Wine Advocate 

"Love the aromas of plums, flowers and dried mushrooms here. Wet soil and lavender too. Full body, firm tannins and a long, delicious finish. The combination of delicious fruit and velvety-textured tannins gives this wine form and structure." James Suckling
