Wine Critic Reviews:

...awesome. It revealed superb depth in its core of generous fruit, with superb concentration as well as balance. It was a memorable wine in every way. In the late 1970s and 1980s Gaja often waited to harvest until very late in the growing season in order to achieve the ripeness he was looking for. 1982 was the last vintage made with this method as subsequent vintages brought warmer weather than had previously been the case.

Sokolin 1982 Gaja Barbaresco Sori Tildin Tasting Notes:

An elegant display and a very fresh, beautifully drinkable wine. It oozes with sweet licorice, herbs, black cherries and seduces from afar. The magnificently full palate balanced with firm structure that doesn't come off heavy in the slightest, softly caressing the mouth like the finest of royal silk. It's a perfect harmony of old-school, experienced wisdom and a boldness and thirst for exploring the new. This imprints the wine with its characteristic vivacity and the natural tendency towards flair that charms and captures hearts in a bat of an eye. Those who get to be enticed in this way can consider themselves lucky to have had the opportunity, and recognize the fortune it is to taste this wine for the first time, the way you'd wish to rewatch a great movie with new eyes again, unspoiled and untainted with expectations.

The ease and class that bless this vintage could defy the greats. It's a real pleasure to bask in, evoking the dearest, perhaps once forgotten memories of joy and laughter and instilling a renewed faith in what's to come. The wine's attracting more and more attention as we speak, so it would be best to secure yourself with a bottle immediately if you wish to clasp your hands around it at all.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer Gaja: Gaja's winery provides magnificent Barbaresco wine with amazing consistency, and the wines evolve with age like a caterpillar turning into a gorgeous butterfly. Their wines are often chewy, fleshy, visceral in a way very few other wineries can boast. The flavors are concentrated, and the wine seems to almost pulsate with pure life force in the glass. Expect to encounter jammy dark fruits, delicious grilled vegetables, and other aromas that make it seem like you're eating a full-course meal prepared by one of the world's finest chefs. It's a complete package in every way imaginable, and a wine that will remain in your memories for decades to come. If you're at a social event, don't expect a bottle of Gaja to still contain wine after about ten minutes!

Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barbaresco: A good Barbaresco traditionally conjures a perfume of powerful floral aroma, and massages your tastebuds with gentle violets and roses creating a juicy burst of cherry and truffle. If you decide to let the wine age, it can develop smokey, earthy notes that round out the experience beautifully. No one is left indifferent after tasting one of these masterpieces, we can assure you of that.
