Sito Moresco is named for the family who farmed this 25-acre estate in Barbaresco before its purchase by the Gaja
family, a nod to the people and traditions that preceded it. It means literally the Moresco site, after the family name of Giovannini Moresco. GAJA created this red blend to deliver greater approachability in its youth.
Sito Moresco is made from vineyards located in the villages of Treiso and Barbaresco (in the Barbaresco appellation) and fruit from Serralunga d’Alba (in the Barolo appellation). Pheasants are featured on Sito Moresco’s label to commemorate the beautiful birds that inhabit the forests adjacent to GAJA’s vineyards.
2017 is a vintage of low yields and with great concentration of fruit, structure and acidity.
Sito Moresco is GAJA’s only true Red Blend wine from Piedmont. Nebbiolo and Barbera are blended with Merlot in this wine to deliver greater approachability in an international, modern style.
The Barbera, removed from the Barbaresco single vineyards, is blended into Sito Moresco, resulting in a pleasant, well-rounded blend.
Ideal to drink young, but matures well for at least 5-7 years.
