We are delighted to offer our allocation of the eagerly awaited 2019 Barolo Sperss and Conteisa from the iconic Gaja estate. Gaja took full advantage of a tremendous year for Piedmont and crafted wines that have been awarded scores of up to a potential high of 100 points from the critics. Sadly, quantities are limited to just a tiny number of cases and magnums, so please do let us know at your earliest if you have interest.
2019 Gaja, Barolo Conteisa
1cs @ £1,510 per case (6*75cl OWC) in bond
1 mag @ £655 per magnum (1*150cl OWC) in bond 
98-100 points Audrey Frick (For Jeb Dunnuck)
The 2019 Barolo Conteisa is a noble wine, with angular and drying tannins, as well as more mineral expression. Notes of medicinal herbs, crushed stones, and pure cherry lead to a wine that is more restrained right now but will be fantastic. Through the palate, it has compact but wonderful concentration and a driving structure and is more herbaceous, savory, and mineral than fruity and floral. It is outstanding. Drink the 2020s while waiting for the 2019s. (2023)
2019 Gaja, Barolo Sperss
1cs @ £1,800 per case (6*75cl OWC) in bond
99 points Audrey Frick (For Jeb Dunnuck)
The 2019 Barolo Sperss is rich with dark mineral earth, black cherry, and Earl Grey tea. Long and mouthwatering, it has a powerful structure while retaining finesse. It is fantastically balanced, with gripping tannins, fresh acidity, and notes of forested earth and ripe red berries. A wine for the long haul, this is another great and noble wine to drink over the coming three decades. (2023) Drink 2023-2053
