Wine Spectator 96 points - Offers fabulous aromas of blueberry and lilac. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and round, caressing tannins. This is deep and concentrated, yet wonderfully balanced. Superb. The best Conteisa after 2000. Best after 2010. 800 cases made. –JS  (Dec 15 2007)

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2003 Conteisa, from the Cerequio vineyard in La Morra, is especially intense in this vintage. It is a rich, full-bodied Conteisa made in a sweet, super-ripe style, with outstanding palate presence and well-integrated tannins. In 2003 the floral, spices notes that are the hallmark of this vineyard are somewhat attenuated. Still, all things considered, this is a lovely effort. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. (Oct 2007)

Producer
The Gaja Winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by five generations of the Gaja family. Giovanni Gaja was the great-grandfather of Angelo Gaja, the Winery’s current owner. In 1994, GAJA acquired its first wine estate in Tuscany, Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino. This estate produces three Brunello di Montalcino wines- including the single vineyard Sugarille- from vineyard holdings totaling sixty five acres. In 1996 Gaja acquired a second property in Tuscany, Ca’Marcanda, located in Castagneto Carducci in Bolgheri. Of the property’s 200 acres, 150 have been planted with new vineyards: primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as Cabernet Franc and Syrah. BottleCurrently, the Gaja Winery owns 250 acres of vineyards in Piedmont, located in the Barbaresco district (Barbaresco and Treiso) and the Barolo district (Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra). Since its inception, the Gaja Winery has continuously evolved in ways that have always focused on meticulous care of and attention to the quality of its wines.
