    Description

    Gaja 's Brunello di Montalcino Magnum is a red wine that is produced from a selection of grapes from 4 Sangiovese vineyards.

    Tasting Notes

    The Brunello di Montalcino Magnum di Gaja has a lively red color, tasty and refined, with a considerable aging potential. It is a wine of great finesse, its scent refers to flowers, red fruits and balsamic herbs, the taste is soft and persistent.

    Processing

    The vinification takes place with the maceration of the skins at a controlled temperature in combined steel and wood vats which lasts about 10/12 days. Subsequently the wine matures for 2 years half in French oak barrels and the rest in French oak barriques. After having carried out scrupulous checks, the wine ages in the bottle for 8/12 months. Thus was born a wine symbol of the excellence and great quality of Gaja wines.

    The Cellar

    The Gaja winery was founded in 1859 in Barbaresco, in Piedmont, in the heart of the Langhe wine growing area. It immediately established itself as one of the symbolic wineries of the region. It was founded by Giovanni Gaja and subsequently passed under the control of his son Angelo. The latter immediately invested in the pursuit of the highest quality. Among the main innovations we find the reduction of the yield per hectare of land, the use of the barrique going against the stylistic choices of aging of the time for the region and type of wine and the introduction of longer corks. This allowed Angelo to express a new face of Piedmontese wine, without becoming too fossilized in tradition, but rather starting from that and innovating. Its wines have been able to establish themselves on the whole world scene as products capable of enhancing the viticultural quality of Piedmont and more generally of made in Italy in the world.
