This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1996 Gaja Sperss

1996 Gaja Sperss - drank at Otto e Mezzo. Lots of fruit right from the start, with a little mint, a hint of floral and some forest notes. Very sweet on the nose, and it just kept on giving... Full-bodied, elegant and smooth on the palate, but gained weight after aeration and became a little tart on the finish. The alcohol level became pretty apparent after about 2 hours. A very beautiful wine, which can only get better with another 10 years of aging.

Full post on dinner is here.
