1971 Gaja Barbaresco

The bottle and fill were in excellent condition. The cork crumbled considerably and I strained the wine through a tea strainer and gave it a dent decant for a few hours. It was singing when we got to it. The nose was all decaying rose, truffle, earth and leather. There was a sweet, vinous note on the palate and plenty of savoury nuance. It had good build and was rich and heady, with a finish that was expansive and long. JH 2022
