The rich and concentrated 2001 Darmagi (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays an almost impenetrable dark ruby color along with classic varietal notes of bell pepper and cassis on the nose. It is dense and packed, with plenty of blackberry and plum flavors, excellent length and a spicy note of crushed black pepper on the finish. Although an enjoyable wine, it comes across as heavy and somewhat dull, lacking the elegance and gracefulness that define this producerís best wines in 2001. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

Bright ruby-red. Warm, rich and inviting aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals, earth, graphite and smoky oak. Sweet, rich, broad and enveloping, with layered, building flavors of black fruits, violet, licorice, dark chocolate, tobacco and minerals. An exceptionally suave, varietally true cabernet from the Piedmont , with a seamless texture and compelling inner-mouth sweetness. Very rich, ripe and long on the finish. This may be even more complete than the very strong 1999 version, which in late September was penetrating, youthful and tightly wound. 93 points

Darmagi, planted in 1978, was Piedmont's first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in more than a century. "Darmagi," is Piedmontese for "what a pity," a comment Angelo Gaja's father, Giovanni, once uttered when he passed the vineyard as it was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1978.

Though very Cabernet in character, Darmagi owes its distinctive, austere personality to the unique terroir of Barbaresco. Excellent fruit with strong cassis flavors and impressive power on the palate carry through to the long finish with persistent soft tannins. Great aging potential.
