An interesting blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and international varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Sito Moresco is the ultimate example of the Gaja family’s drive for innovation and research.
This is a very structured and intense red wine, with complexity and persistence both at the nose and on the palate.
Red ripe fruits, candied citrus zest, pepper, balsamic notes of sage, cloves, ink and iron. In the mouth, a structured texture of fruit accompanies the bright acidity and firm to elegant tannins. Moderately smooth and harmonious.
Grapes: Nebbiolo, Merlot, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon
Pairing: It is great with cured meats, aged cheese boards, pasta with beef ragù, cheeseburgers, canard a l’orange.
I would have it also with a grilled fatty fish or a tuna filet.
Appellation: Langhe DOP, Italy
