The wines of Angelo Gaja are the most celebrated and collectible Piedmontese wines in the world. The vineyards used for this wine were acquired by Gaja in 1995 from a family named Gromis, who owned them going back to the 1800's. DaGromis is produced with Nebbiolo grapes grown in these two old vineyards, one in Serralunga adjacent to the Sperss vineyard and the other in La Morra adjacent to the Conteisa vineyard. The soil of both vineyards is primarily calcareous clay and marl; altitudes range from 985 to 1475 feet above sea level; exposures are south-east and south-west. 100% Nebbiolo aged 12 months in barriques and then in traditional large oak casks for an additional 12 months. In the same spirit of its name, which pays homage to the family who once farmed this land, DaGromis is a classic expression of the Barolo appellation.
