Drink now through to 2027. Serve chilled.

The work of mythical Italian producer Angelo Gaja, the Chardonnay-based Rossj Bass is named after Angelo’s youngest daughter, Rossana, and ranks amongst Italy’s most sought-after white wines. The addition of a small proportion of Sauvignon Blanc to this Chardonnay has created a rounded, structured wine that exudes grace and sophistication.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in barriques for six to seven months, the nose erupts with ripe peaches, mangos, sweet lemon curd, toasted almonds and hints of fresh flowers and mountain herbs. In the mouth the rich, full texture is balanced by a crisp acidity and intense tropical fruit, citrus and toasty flavours which linger long on the tongue. The opulent character of the Rossj Bass makes it a versatile match for special chicken or lobster dishes as well as milder Asian pork or salmon recipes.

Often compared to the finest white Burgundies from Montrachet, the limited production Rossj Gaja is in high demand with Chardonnay lovers around the globe thanks to the decades Angelo has devoted to proving the potential of Piedmontese wines. When he took over the family business in 1970, he controversially introduced temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and small oak barriques for ageing, ushering in a new era for Piedmontese winemaking. Today he is in the process of handing over the reins to the next generation, his three children, but there is no doubt his magnificent legacy will endure for decades to come throughout the Piedmont region.
