Lot #524. Gaja Sito Moresco 2013

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Langhe.
Score: 92 JG.
"The 2013 Sito Moresco from the Gaja family is composed of a blend of predominantly nebbiolo, with cabernet sauvignon and merlot playing supporting roles. The wine offers up a lovely and very refined bouquet that is quite nebbiolo-centric, delivering scents of red and black cherries, licorice, tobacco smoke, gamebird, soil and a well-done framing of spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely structured, with a fine core of fruit, good soil signature, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a very long, nascently complex and well-balanced finish. I am not normally a big fan of these blended wines from Piemonte, but this is really well done and I am dutifully impressed. It could do with at least a few more years to soften up and blossom further, and should peak around 2023. Fine juice." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Jan/Feb 2018, Issue #73
