2010 Gaja Barbaresco

SKU #1181939 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Gaja’s classic Barbaresco is gorgeous in 2010, showing an intense perfume of violet, earth and ripe red fruits punctuated by balsamic notes. The palate delivers rich wild cherry notes layered with mint, cinnamon and eucalyptus. This is structured and elegant and will develop more complexity over time. *Cellar Selection* (KO) Inner quote mark (9/2013)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Smack from the start, the 2010 Barbaresco shows full-on Gajissimo personality with irresistible opulence and intensity, magically contrasted against remarkable smoothness and finesse. Everyone wants to know his secret. The wine delivers seductively rich concentration and integrated oak that is offset by a delicate portfolio of chiseled mineral, dried berry fruit, Spanish cedar, crushed herb, anisette and blue flower. Fruit is sourced from 14 vineyards in Barbaresco. It already leaves a mark, but will reward those who wait. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very aromatic with strawberries, flowers and cherries. Some sawdust character from the wood barrels. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a creamy, cherry and cedar undertone. Very elegant. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Freshly cut flowers, raspberries, mint, anise and licorice all waft from the glass in Gaja's 2010 Barbaresco. Mid-weight, gracious and utterly impeccable, the 2010 stands out for its balance and harmony. Sweet floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and brilliance. All the elements fall into place in this supple, beautifully balanced Barbaresco that represents the essence of the vintage. I am surprised how open and accessible the 2010 is for a young Gaja Barbaresco. Although the 2010 will be better in a few years, it already drinks well with a little air. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright medium red. Enticing, nuanced nose offers red berries, red cherry and spicy, earthy underbrush. Rich, broad and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth perfume and tension. Seemed to shut down in the glass, showing a penetrating juicy quality and finishing with suave tannins and terrific length. A splendid Barbaresco. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tinged with new oak that lends a spicy impression, this red evokes cherry, menthol and underbrush notes. Supple and beautifully balanced, with a long finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2014)
