Product Description

“With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2011 Langhe Sperss is a wine of profound beauty. This is a velvety and caressing expression with dark fruit layers followed by kirsch, cassis, leather, balsam herb and white truffle. The Gaja family decided to move their bottling date forward in order to preserve the integrity and freshness of fruit in this warm vintage. This move has helped to avoid overripe sensations. In fact, Langhe Sperss seems fresh and tonic. This bodes exceptionally well for its aging potential.” Wine Advocate 95 Points

“Aromas of menthol, tobacco, juicy black fruit, grilled herb and a whiff of truffle unfold in the glass. Made with Nebbiolo from the firm's Serralunga holdings and a drop of Barbera, it has a pristine palate that delivers dark black cherry, licorice and black pepper alongside firm but fine tannins.” Wine Enthusiast 95 Points

“Love the aromas of plums, flowers and dried mushroom here. Wet soil and lavender too. Full body, firm tannins and a long and delicious finish. The combination of delicious fruit and velvety textured tannins gives this wine form and structure.” James Suckling 94 Points

“A mix of licorice, black cherry, vanilla, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors marks this intense red, which stays fresh and long, showing balance overall.” Wine Spectator 93 Points

“A dark, voluptuous beauty, the 2011 Sperss is wonderfully expressive and open today. There is plenty of Serralunga volume and power, but the vintage has given the Sperss softer contours than is typically the case. Lavender, smoke, violets, mint and succulent black cherries blossom through to the inviting, resonant finish.” Vinous 93 Points
