Description:

Gaja Sperss 1997
Piedmont
u: both into neck, wear to capsules (light corrosion to one), slight nicking and bin markings to labels (one with small loss)
"A virtually perfect effort is the 1997 Sperss (30,000 bottles), which represents the essence of truffles, earth, and black cherries in its striking aromatics and multidimensional, opulent, full-bodied palate. The acidity seems low because of the huge glycerin levels and prodigious concentration of fruit, but I suspect it is normal in the scheme of oenological measurement. This profound wine requires 3-4 years of cellaring, and should age well for 30-35 years." R. Parker for TWA, 99 pts. 06/01
2 bottles
Estimate $500-850
