Gaja Barolo Conteisa 2018 - IN BOND

gaja conteisa - wimbledon wine cellar

2018 is an expressive vintage for Conteisa marked by bright fruity notes and delicate tannin structure...

Intense and enveloping notes, blood orange, plum, and mineral aromas. In the mouth, voluminous with sweet tannins, finishing with an inviting licorice note.

95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2022: Gaja's 2018 Barolo Conteisa is elegant, gracious and classy to the core. Silky tannins and lifted, floral aromatics give this mid-weight Barolo tons of charm. This is classic Cerequio. Sweet red berry, pomegranate, kirsch, blood orange and mint notes, that are such signatures of this La Morra site, are beautifully delineated. All the elements are so nicely balanced. I can’t wait to see how the 2018 ages. The Gajas were especially selective in 2018. Bottled production for Conteisa is down 50%.    

96, James Suckling, August 2022: The fresh and just ripe strawberry aromas really come through here, together with some licorice and floral highlights. Medium to full body with fine, focused tannins that are vertical and bring your palate down through the wine. A solid and beautiful wine for the vintage. Try after 2025.
