One of my friends started out as big fan of Gaja, late 80's-mid 90's. But then he got a string of corked bottles (different bottlings, different years), so he gave up spending on them.
Do you know if anyone else has commented on cork taint issues with Gaja during that period? Or was it just bad luck?
This was the first Gaja Barbaresco I had bought (and likely the last, given the price) and my oldest Gaja. But I’ve had a bunch of 1997 & 2001 Darmagi and 1996 & 1997 Sperss that have all been rock solid.
