GAJA Darmagi 2015

The GAJA Darmagi is a celebrated concentrated red wine and testament to Angelo Gaja's vision when he decided to plant the noble grape Cabernet Sauvignon in the Langhe. Planted in 1978, Darmagi is Angelo Gaja’s tribute to the prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon variety, and a perfect example of the unique Langhe expression in wines, even from non-traditional grape varieties. According to the often told legend, Angelo Gaja’s father exclaimed “darmagi!” upon learning that his son had planted Cabernet Sauvignon in vineyards previously devoted to Piedmont’s traditional Nebbiolo grape. Akin to the French quel dommage, the Piedmontese expression 'darmagi' means what a pity...or what a shame! With his characteristic respect for tradition and those who came before him, the younger Gaja decided to call this wine Darmagi, a homage to his family’s legacy with an eye toward the future. Matured in oak for 24 months Darmagi opens with typical aromatic notes of menthol, coffee powder, herbs and cassis. The palate is texturally rich and dense, with ripe dark cherry, preserved black currant, blueberry, and plum flavours. Solid in structure with great volume, fine grained tannins and lifting acidity, the Darmagi is a charming fruity wine now, but it will age gracefully.
