Tasting Note WS 99/100 (Vintage 2004) Powerful and structured. Delicate aromas of sandalwood, blackberry, licorice and cherry follow through to a full body, with very chewy tannins and loads of pretty fruit and hints of vanilla. Sneaks up on you to deliver a red for aging. Massive. An amazing wine. Best after 2014. eRobert Parker RP/WA : 96/100 (Vintage 2004) Antonio Galloni Gaja’s 2004 Langhe Sperss is an infant. Still incredibly primary, it exudes the essence of Serralunga black fruits, smoke and tar. The new oak is still very evident here and the wine seems to be at an awkward phase of its development. Still, it offers stunning concentration as well as length, with soft, caressing tannins that frame the fruit all the way to the long finish. This wine is in need of serious bottle age and may very well merit a higher score once it emerges from its temporary period of dormancy. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. WINE ENTHUSIAST WE 94/100 (Vintage 2004) Sperss is a vineyard located in the Serralunga area (Nebbiolo with 6% Barbera) that delivers pristine aromas of wild berry, anise, sweet spice, licorice and Spanish cedar. Oak-driven notes of vanilla and leather softly shade the background and fuel a soft, supple mouthfeel. The wine is generous, polished, well integrated and will drink beautifully for decades to come.
