Angelo Gaja


* Angelo Gaja, now also known as "the King of Barbaresco", entered in the 'family business, founded in 1859 by his great-grandfather John, in 1961, having completed his studies at the' Wine Institute of Alba, the University of Montpellier and at the Faculty of Economics, University of Turin.

After several trips to France, and overcome several discussions with his father, Angelo Gaja succeeded with his plan to introduce and develop some practical absolutely revolutionary in the context of the Nebbiolo Langhe and wine making in this case, such as malolactic fermentation, the 'use of French oak barrels, the temperature-controlled fermentation and cultivation of international varieties. Also since 1961, he began the first experiments of thinning in the vineyard as well as the separate vinification of the grapes from the individual plots: Sori San Lorenzo, Sori Tildin and Costa Russi.

In 1978 the vineyard Darmagi, traditionally cultivated with Nebbiolo, was replanted with Cabernet Sauvignon. This action was not dictated by the Angel of passion for Cabernet Sauvignon, but by the desire to show the world the great Italian oenological potential through the production of a great Cabernet aged in barriques. The case of the vineyard Darmagi was not the only one, in fact followed the planting of Chardonnay in the vineyard Gaja & Rey and also into the vineyard Sauvignon Alteni of Brassica.

A white fly. Angelo Gaja has always been considered a modernist in a land of traditionalists, then, as expected, in the early years there were criticisms directed against him, but some clarifications in this regard are necessary.Unlike other modernists in fact, Angelo Gaja is a very moderate use of new wood; maceration of red lasts up to 30 days, according to tradition, and finally it must be remembered that, although the wines for the first year in new oak barrels for a affinino Third, the aging process always ends in large barrels of Slavonian or chestnut, some of which are between 80 and 120 years.

With the 1996 vintage deliberately Angelo Gaja declassified its wines Barolo and Barbaresco DOCG (with the exception of a label) to the DOC Langhe Rosso. Items wanted the decision had been taken to cut the Nebbiolo with international grapes. Gaja always denied, stating instead that, among other reasons which had prompted him to take such a decision, there was the desire to be free to be able to enter their wines in a small percentage of Barbera (typically 5-6%) to support the acidity.

To date Anegelo Gaja, in addition to properties in Barbaresco and Barolo, owns vineyards in Montalcino (Pieve Santa Restituta) and Bolgheri (Ca 'Marcanda), and its reputation is firmly established, and he is certainly considered one of the great protagonists of wine world. Recall that in 1985 Wine Spectator described the wines of Gaja nothing less than "the best wines ever produced in Italy."
