The 2006 Langhe Conteisa is a beautifully firm, transparent wine endowed with expressive red fruits, menthol, flowers and licorice. The 2006 is decidedly more reticent than the 2007, but it shows tons of harmony, length and class. The finish is utterly seductive. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. (AG)
Medium red, less saturated than Gaja's wines from Barbaresco. Highly complex nose offers dark chocolate, truffle, minerals and flowers, along with a slight suggestion of dried fruits. Rich and deep but tightly wound; less floral in the mouth today than the examples from Barbaresco. The long, sweet finish mounts slowly, but today the wine's serious tannins are keeping the fruit under wraps. 93+ (ST)
