    Description

    Barolo 2003
    Sperss, Gaja
    Bottle (6)

    An Italian heavy wine collection from a Chappaqua professional. One can see the passion in the diversity of the selection here. There’s Giacosa, Conterno and Rinaldi but at the same time there’s Silver Oak and Caymus. All of the wines here have been stored in a temperature-controlled wine cellar on the Chappaqua estate.

    "Gaja’s 2003 Sperss is made from vineyards in Serralunga and offers better balance than the Conteisa. It is plump and juicy, with a generous core of dark fruit, tar and menthol supported by a massive, imposing structure. The wine offers notable length although there is a suggestion of heat on the finish. This powerful, brooding Sperss will require patience, even if today it gives the illusion of being a relatively accessible vintage for this wine." (93 pts. Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #173, Oct. 2007)
