"Gaja's Darmagi is gorgeous in this vintage. This is a surprisingly juicy, extroverted Darmagi. Today it is the purity and sweetness of the fruit that stands out. Vibrant and totally alive in the glass the 2010 impresses for its sheer drinkability. Hints of cassis, blue fruit, grilled herbs and menthol are some of the many notes that wrap around the finish. This is a gorgeous Darmagi. The 2010 is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Drinking window: 2018 2035."

"Rubyred. Aromas of blackcurrant, spices, licorice, minerals and wild herbs, plus a hint of chocolate truffle. Sappy and highly concentrated, with terrific energy and a liqueurlike nuance to the flavors of black fruits, wild herbs and green pepper. Gripping, complex, sharply delineated cabernet with harmonious acidity and a very long, resounding finish featuring finegrained tannins. An outstanding vintage for this bottling, and likely to be longlived. Today, fruit for this wine is sourced from 5 acres in Barbaresco, where growing conditions render structured expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon with impressive aging potential. This wine showed the international community that the terroir Piedmont could produce worldclass wines using grapes other than those traditionally grown there. Today, this Cabernet Sauvignon is a favorite among the great collectors of the world. Color: Intense, deep red, almost black Aroma: Opulent layers of concentrated fruit. Taste: Excellent fruit with strong cassis flavors and impressive power on the palate carry through to the long finish with persistent soft tannins. Great aging potential."
