2004 Gaja Brunello Di Montalcino Sugarille

    Tasting notes: The seductive, smoky nose gives way on the palate to dark plum, blueberry, juniper berry, and cocoa essences. Worth knowing: Since 1961, when present patriarch, Angelo Gaja, first joined the business, he has introduced a number of groundbreaking practices, including the use of French oak barriques for aging and the production of single-vineyard wines. He also expanded the family’s winemaking operations outside of its native region, acquiring Ca’Marcanda of Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri and Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino.
