In 1995 Gaja bought a propriety in La Morra. The property is 10 hectares, almost all included in the Cerequio vineyard. The winery (an obsolete building which they do not use) had a stock of older vintages. It took them a bit of time to understand what they had.
The propriety was named Gromis. The stock that was in the cellar was inspected, some vintages have not been sold because they did not like the quality, but some other vintages were very good (1970, 1982, 1989, etc) so Gaja released them with the label Barolo Gromis.
CONTESIA CEREQUIO BAROLO was the label Gaja devoted for the best Cerequio parcels (some vintages were already in the barrels at the moment of the acquisition, for example 1991 or 1993). For these wines, they took care of the last part of the ageing.
In 1996 Gaja decided to devote 4 hectars in the heart of Cerequio cru for the production of Gaja Conteisa Langhe Nebbiolo DOC which (like all of Gaja's single vineyards …Costa Russi, Sori San Lorenzo, Sori Tildin and Sperss) is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera, in this case 92% Nebbiolo and 8% Barbera.

"Lovely contemplative wine. Brick red color, as am aged barolo should be. Nose had lovely tertiary notes of menthol and pink pepper, almost like an northern rhone red, that are starting to show through the overwhelming scent of roses and hints of the classic tar scent as well as cedar. Still fairly structured with high acidity but the tannins just melt away as the wine flows over the palate. The fruit was classic barolo red fruit, especially cherries, with orange zest and tobacco coming through on the 45 second finish. The palate played second to the seductive and powerful nose, but the fruit is so fresh it could easily last another decade. If I can find more, I will buy more. This stuff is amazing!" (Aug 2012)
