Producer Description

Angelo GAJA’s first venture into Tuscany was this small, wonderfully sited Brunello estate. While all eyes are now on what comes out of his major undertaking in Bolgheri, CA’ MARCANDA, the wines here are beginning to show the impact of his winemaker, Guido Rivella. Two Brunellos are made – Rennina, a superior selection from the best vines, and Sugarille, from a single-vineyard site. The original 11ha have been expanded and will eventually total 35ha, still small by comparison with the zone’s biggest producers. The wines already command high prices, whether by design or demand, but show an elegance and structure that since 1995 have set them apart from most other Brunello. The first vintages formulated with the Gaja magic are only beginning to be ready for drinking as both wines need at least 10–12 years’ age (and should keep for considerably longer).
