Winery: Gagliasso

The Gagliasso Estate
The Azienda Agricola Mario Gagliasso is located in the town of La Morra, south of Piedmont, in the province of Cuneo, in the Langhe area.
The winery offers one of the most beautiful views over the Langhe area.
La Morra is located at 513 meters above sea-level, 13 km from Alba, on the top of an imposing hill with the Alps and the Monviso as a background. The hill is planted with vines, for ming huge waves and creating an amphitheatre of rare beauty.

Luca Gagliasso’s family has a long history of winemaking. Luca's grandfather began 50 years ago, at which time he bottled the first Barolo from their historic vineyard, Rocche dell'Annunziata. Around 1987, Lucas's father took over the family tradition of producing wine and brought forth a few changes: he started by using barriques from France, together with large barrels and temperature controlled steel vats. He also purchased a new vineyard. Luca began working with his father during the 2000 vintage, only part time for the first 3 years. He also worked for 3 years with their wine consultant in an analysis laboratory, and worked as a consultant for other wineries.

Luca now works alongside his father, mother, and sister on their 12 hectares of vineyards. On the weekends, Luca's sister and mother work in their restaurant as cooks – only the Gagliasso wines are served. They are currently extending their facility and in the future they plan to incorporate some guest rooms to the restaurant.
The Gagliasso family produces around 60,000 bottles: 40% Barolo, 30% Barbera, 20% Dolcetto and 10% Chardonnay. They have around 250 barriques and 6 large barrels.
Dolcetto is very fruity, aged for a small period in big cask. They produce 3 Barolos and 2 Barberas, one aged 18 months in new oak and the other one only in steel vats. They age the Barolo for 18 months in new barriques, then 12 months in a large cask. Chardonnay is cold macerated, then fermented and aged in French oak for 9 months.

Gagliasso Barolo Riserva Oak Box is made from 100% Nebbiolo

Complex and intense aromas of red fruits intermixed with licorice, prune, leather, smoke and notes of toasty oak and vanilla. Full-bodied on the palate with loads of ripe dried and candied fruits, pepper and mocha.

The wine comes in a 6 bottle wooden box.

After malolattic fermentation the wine stays for 10 months in French barrels, 10% new oak and 90% different years; after this period all barrels are blended ( 50% Torriglione and 50% Rocche dell’Annunziata) in old barrels for 48 months again. The wine is bottled and refined for 24 months.

There's a gritty, sandy quality to the tannins that would cut through roast pork stuffed with prunes.


Review:


Exciting the blend of Rocche and Torriglione which expresses so much power in this extraordinary vintage. Part in slight reduction and slowly reveals hints of black plums, tobacco leaf, tomato leaf, black tea leaves, melted caramel licorice, incense and lots of bergamot. Solid and powerful on the palate with perfectly ripe tannins. Magic in the glass in Barolo.

Dark, radiant ruby ​​red. On the nose, nuances of black tea, dried blood oranges, rich cherries, a bit of wild berries, light quinine, with an aftertaste of cedarwood and mint. On the palate with elegant, close-meshed tannin, rich dark fruit and harmonious course, spans a beautiful fan to the long finish.

Elvio Cogno Barolo Ravera 2017

Elvio Cogno Baroloa Ravera is made from 100 percent Nebbiolo. 

2017 is to be considered a very good vintage. Despite being characterized by hot and dry summer months, water reserves in the soil and September rain saved the vines from being stressed by water shortage. These factors, together with the excellent exposure of our plots and the scrupulous practices adopted in the vineyard during the growing season, allowed the grapes to fully ripen, avoiding to anticipate the harvest date too much. The 2017 wines are incredibly pleasant to drink: they are rich in crunchy red fruit, with an energetic mouthfeel, dominated by freshness and elegant tannins.

Goes well with braised meats, stewed game, roasts, and mature cheeses such as pecorino and Parmigiano Reggiano.

Brilliant garnet-red in color with orange highlights. Firm, elegant and potent on the nose, it has scents of dog-rose, mint and tobacco, scents that meld over the course of time into spice, coffee, licorice, truffle, leather and minerals. A full-bodied, rounded bouquet of great structure and balance, redolent of plum jam and withered brambles. The persistent chocolatey aftertaste is harmonious and enticing. Over the years, it gradually refines its characteristics to achieve classic elegance and composure.

Review:

Made by the estate that put this celebrated cru on the map, and showing an enviable combination of elegance and power, this stunning wine opens with aromas of wild berries, underbrush, dark spice and balsamic notes of cedar and new leather. The tense, savory palate is loaded with youthful energy, showing succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in tightly knit, refined tannins and surprisingly bright acidity for the vintage. A mineral note suggesting iron adds depth to the close.
