Originating in and still based in Barbaresco, in northwest Italy, the Gaja name remains most strongly associated with Nebbiolo-based wines, though the company now makes more wine in Tuscany than Piedmont. The business was founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja with just two hectares (five acres) of vineyards in Barbaresco. Each generation saw expansion, although Angelo Gaja, who took over full-time in 1970, is often credited with the estate's more recent success. He was responsible for overseeing sweeping changes in the vineyards and cellars, and introducing the famed single-vineyard Barbaresco wines Sorì San Lorenzo, Sorì Tildìn, and Costa Russi (now Langhe DOC wines). These changes were not always well-received: famously, the name of the Darmagi Cabernet Sauvignon translates as 'what a pity', referring to Angelo's father's regret over the introduction of Bordeaux varieties. In 1994, Gaja took over the 27 hectare (67 acre) Pieve Santa Restituta estate in Montalcino, followed by the 118 hectare (290 acre) Ca' Marcanda estate in Bolgheri. The name of this estate, acquired after protracted negotiations, translates as 'House of Haggling'. Although Angelo Gaja has never announced his retirement, the company is run in conjunction with daughters Gaia and Rossana.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T14:35:04-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-24T03:56:00-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Italy","nini2403","other_italian wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Gaja","Region_Piedmont","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_White Wine","Varietal_Sauvignon Blanc"],"price":44999,"price_min":44999,"price_max":44999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42867781828746,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2020 | Gaja | Alteni di Brassica Sauvignon","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":44999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/16_a147601e-22b8-4547-b0e0-ff6b38599998.png?v=1679644652"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/16_a147601e-22b8-4547-b0e0-ff6b38599998.png?v=1679644652","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2020 | Gaja | Alteni di Brassica Sauvignon at CaskCartel.com","id":24469288059018,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.292,"height":828,"width":242,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/16_a147601e-22b8-4547-b0e0-ff6b38599998.png?v=1679644652"},"aspect_ratio":0.292,"height":828,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/16_a147601e-22b8-4547-b0e0-ff6b38599998.png?v=1679644652","width":242}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eWhite Wine: 2020 | Gaja | Alteni di Brassica Sauvignon\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eLayers of sweet citrus, papaya and pineapple are complemented by fresh floral notes of jasmine and a light herbaceousness.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Gaja\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003e V\u003c\/span\u003e | 92\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage:\u003c\/b\u003e 2020\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 13%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Sauvignon Blanc\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Italy, Piedmont\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMatured for eight months in fine French oak, it combines all the vibrant fruit character one would expect from the grape variety with the finesse and seductiveness one would expect from this prestigious estate.
