Lot #336. Gaja Sperss 1989

Description: Consists of 11 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 97 WA.
"The 1989 Barolo Sperss is wonderfully complete and polished, as layers of seamless, ripe fruit emerge from its powerful frame with tons of class. The wine reveals stunning elegance and purity wrapped around a powerful core of Serralunga fruit that speaks volumes of the greatness of this terroir. The 1989 Sperss can be enjoyed today as the tannins are incredibly finessed, but it also looks to have many years of profound drinking ahead of it." Wine Advocate #187, Feb 2010
Notes: 2 base neck, 2 top shoulder, 3 slightly protruding corks, 1 slightly recessed cork, 4 lightly scuffed capsules, 6 lightly wrinkled labels, 5 very lightly wrinkled labels.
