2007 Angelo Gaja, Barbaresco
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Medallions of venison with port and cranberries; lamb chops with minted potatoes and zucchini or grilled sirloin steak with anise basil butter.
This particular vintage has a nose that is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, liquorice, mineral and coffee scents; dense structure. The wine has a wonderfully complex and persistent finish.
