1988 Barolo Sperss 1988 Angelo Gaja (3 litre – Double Magnum)
1988 Barolo Sperss 1988 Angelo Gaja (3 litre – Double Magnum) from Vintage Wine Gifts
Scoring 92/100 Parker points “Consistently one of the reference points for Italian wines, Angelo Gaja has fashioned some spectacular new releases. Gaja’s long-time dream of owning vineyards in Barolo has finally been realized. No one who loves his wines will be disappointed with his first two Barolo releases. Moreover, by Gaja’s standards, even the price is palatable. The 1988 Barolo-Sperss exhibits a deep color, tremendous extraction of fruit, and soft acids and tannins. It is a backward, unevolved, potentially exceptional wine. Tightly packed, full-bodied, and muscular, its wonderful tar, rose, and black-cherry-scented nose is just beginning to emerge.” Drink now – 2040. Sperss is a term affectionately used to denote nostalgia for precious things lost with time. This is a rare double magnum of the first ever commercial release of this wine. This vintage wine is shipped in its origional wooden box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine thermometer) [worth £17.99] at no extra cost and now includes a free gift card with your personal message and tasting and storage notes.
