Ratings & Tasting notes:
95-97 points Int’l Wine Cellar Saturated deep ruby. Brooding, rather withdrawn aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, espresso and menthol. Dense and huge yet almost magically elegant, thanks to superb vinosity and tannic spine. This monumental wine boasts extraordinary opulence for a Barolo from Serralunga yet gives no impression of excess weight. Great lingering, vibrant finish. (ST) (12/2000)
96 points Vinous The 1997 Gaja Sperss is another wine that is showing beautifully, although this bottle isn’t as profound as others have been. Layers of dark, mineral-inflected Serralunga fruit flow across the palate as the 1997 struts its stuff. (AG) (12/2013)
Always stored in a climate controlled cellar.
