Intense and bright ruby in colour with violet, mulberry and fresh spiced aromas lifting from the glass. This is a beautifully layered wine with crunchy red fruit notes and red plum and cherry leading to a long-lasting finish with a hint of minerality. Moresco has a super charming and juicy body, characterised by harmony and freshness, with ripe and well-integrated tannins.

The pioneering Gaja family has been growing vines and making wine for five generations, a tradition they started in 1859 in Piedmont. Each generation nurtures the dreams and vision of the previous one, building and innovating for the next. Above all, they are inspired by respect for nature and believe attention to detail is paramount. Without a doubt,the name Gaja is synonymous with innovation and each generation has brought something new. Clotilde Rey drove the direction of quality, her son Giovanni continued this legacy as well as acquiring some of the best vineyards in Barbaresco including the three ‘crus’ for which Gaja is best known: Sorė San Lorenzo, Sorė Tildėn and Costa Russi. Angelo introduced new methods with higher density planting, green harvesting, lower yields, temperature controlled vinification, shorter macerations, large barrique ageing and longer corks. While their home remains in the beautiful village of Barbaresco, more recent adventures have taken them to Tuscany where the Pieve Santa Restituta Estate in Montalcino produces a stunning Brunello, and to Ca’Marcanda in Bolgheri.

Produced from grapes grown mainly in Pajoré in Treiso and in Serralunga on predominantly limestone soil.

Each variety was vinified separately in stainless steel tanks before blending and then matured in oak for 12 months.

This versatile and approachable wine pairs well with a variety of dishes, from roasted meats to grilled vegetables.
