Darmagi, planted in 1978, was Piedmont's first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in over a century. "Darmagi" – Piedmontese for "what a pity" – is named for a comment Angelo Gaja's father, Giovanni, once uttered when he passed the vineyard as it was planted. The wine is an intense deep red, almost black, with an aroma of cassis and concentrated fruit. The persistent soft tannins have impressive power.
