A little history.... The vineyard dates from 1984 and is named after Angelo Gaja's youngest daughter, Rossana (Rossj) and the position of the vineyard at the bottom of the hill (Bass). The two pheasants are a poetic reminder of the presence of many birds near this vineyard. This elegant wine is composed of 95% Chardonnay and 5% Sauvignon Blanc, which adds a touch of freshness.
