Tasting Notes:

Gaja’s addition to the “Super-Piemontese” genre, Sito Moresco combines sweet fruit, delicate herbaceous notes, chewy tannins and a full body to offer an affordable, precise and deliciously unique red wine experience. This blend of almost equal parts Nebbiolo, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon derives from several of Gaja’s vineyards as well as the estate’s “Sito Moresco” site located in Barbaresco.

Sito Moresco is named after the Giovannini Moresco family, who farmed the 25-acre estate in Barbaresco before its purchase by the Gaja family. It literally means ‘the Moresco site’ – a nod to the people and traditions that preceded it.

Today, this wine is made from vineyards located in the villages of Barbaresco and Treiso (both lying in the Barbaresco appellation), with additional fruit from Serralunga d'Alba (in the Barolo appellation). Pheasants are featured on Sito Moresco's label to commemorate the beautiful birds that inhabit the forests adjacent to Gaja's vineyards.

The three varieties ferment and macerate separately for three weeks. After the malolactic fermentation, they are blended and then aged in oak for 12 months.
