Description

GAJA Darmagi Langhe DOC 2015

GAJA Darmagi has a dense crimson colour in the glass. The nose reveals cherry, blackberry and licorice spice aromas. Well-balanced with a good structure, soft tannins and a fresh acidity. Ripe cherry jam, fresh blueberry and blackberry flavours with notes of vanilla, cocoa and gingerbread spice.

Fun fact: The name Darmagi derives from the Piedmontese expression "what a pity", which was expressed by Angelo Gaja's father when he saw Nebbiolo vines uprooted to plant Cabernet vines.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit for this wine comes from Langhe DOC in the Piedmont wine-growing region. The vineyard has a limestone and clay soil composition.

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures for 3 weeks. The wine goes through refinement in steel, then ages in large wooden barrels and casks.

Ageing potential: Drink now or cellar until 2040.
