2018 Gaia & Rey Chardonnay, Gaja, Piedmont
Gaja

If one estate defines Barbaresco, it’s Gaja. It’s the oldest winery in the DOC, founded in 1859. But it’s the extravagant Angelo Gaja who really put the estate on the map, and Barbaresco itself. 1967 was the first vintage of his ‘Sori’ bottlings: he was one of the pioneers of single vineyard wines in Italy. The results speak for themselves, and the influence of his daughter Gaia Gaja who’s come on board: these wines routinely score among the highest for the entire region.
