Gaja Langhe Darmagi 2004

Gaja Langhe Darmagi 750ml 2004       
Sku: 17226

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.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2007)
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon aromas and flavors take a back seat to a plump, jammy expression of fruit in the 2004 Darmagi. Made in a very Piedmontese style, it seems to have more in common with Barbera than Cabernet, an impression which is reinforced the more it sits in the glass. This perfumed wine is bursting with pure, clean, well-delineated fruit. It is a lovely effort, yet readers expecting a more representative example of Cabernet Sauvignon will probably be happier looking elsewhere, as this is a very unusual Darmagi. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.

This is dark, rich and very silky. Full-bodied, with ripe tannins and a long, caressing finish. Well-crafted and extremely pretty. Always one of the best Cabernet Sauvignons from the Langhe. Best after 2009. 650 cases made. –JS
