Cellar/Tasting Notes
As the vineyard is located in a coveted area (betweem the townships of La Morra and Barolo), the name Conteisa was given as the italian word (Piedmontese dialect) for contended is contesa.

The expressive floral aromas exhibit notes of red berries, plums, licorice and spices. The Nebbiolo in Conteisa reflects the essence of the Cerequio terroir: sumptuous texture and a very refined character with perfectly integrated tannins.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"The 2009 Conteisa sees fruit harvested from the Cerequio cru in La Morra and is one of two “Barolo-inspired” wines made by the Gaja family. A small percentage of Barbera is added to the blend. Very expressive of the cru, Conteisa opens with a beautifully floral footprint of pressed rose and blue violets followed by bright cherry, cassis, chopped mint, licorice, tar, ginger and delicately smoked cedar. Again, the complexity is mind-blowing. The wine glides effortlessly over the palate, but make no mistake, that tight, tannic austerity kicks in at the back."
