Sperss Barolo 1989 Gaja
€ 422,29 (in Vat)
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
The 1989 Barolo Sperss gives the impression of being more evolved, softer, and fatter than the single vineyard Barbarescos. Although there appears to be more depth of fruit, and the nose is more expressive, sweeter, and flamboyant, a thorough examination of the wine reveals considerable tannin. Nevertheless, the rich, ripe, broad, expansive fruit, full-bodied, chewy texture, and soft acids make for a decadently rich, complex, compelling bottle of Barolo.
Winespectator / James Suckling (96)
Complex and fascinating, offering all sorts of floral, earthy overtones to the solid core of black cherry, blackberry and anise flavors. An intense wine that shows many facets, including a welcome whiff of vanilla and toast on the aftertaste.
