2014 Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Gaiun (750ml) Pre-Arrival15 0 0 4
"This is a stellar set of wines from Marchesi di Grèsy. As has been the norm now for a few years, the Barbarescos are presented in a staggered fashion so that this year's new releases span three vintages. The Martinenga and Camp Gros Barbarescos are aged for a year in barrique and then 12 months in cask for the Martinenga and 15 months in cask for Camp Gros. The Gaiun, on the other hand, sees only French oak barriques, of which about 30% are new. Those are but mere details, though, because all the Barbarescos I tasted on my most recent were sublime and well worth seeking out." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)
Gaiun is a parcel of Martinenga, on the western side of the amphiteatre with a south exposure at an altitude of 230m to 290m.
"The 2014 Barbaresco Gaiun is simply stunning. Rich, layered and explosive, with tremendous depth, the 2014 is all class. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice, new leather and spice race across the palate. Gaiun has rarely been this aristocratic, profound or complete. The 2014 is all that, and more." 96 points - Antonio Galloni (Vinous, August 2018)
