Gaja Langhe Darmagi 2001

Gaja Langhe Darmagi 750ML 2001       
Sku: 107832

Darmagi, planted in 1978, was Piedmont’s first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in more than a century. ”Darmagi,” is Piedmontese for ”what a pity,” a comment Angelo Gaja’s father, Giovanni, once uttered when he passed the vineyard as it was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1978.

The 2001 Darmagi is impressive. Darmagi is Gaja?s most vintage sensitive red, but the 2001 is truly superb. Dark cherries, plums, bell peppers, sweet herbs and licorice are nicely layered in this vibrant, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2001 Darmagi brings together the characteristics of cool-climate Cabernet and an extroverted personality that are very nicely balanced. The 2001 is still very much on the young side, although it can be enjoyed today. I am amazed at how well the 2001 has developed over the years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

Superclean, with raspberry, plum and cedar aromas and flavors. Just a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very fine indeed. Stylish. Best after 2008. 2,800 cases made. JS
