External Reviews for Barbaresco Sorì S. Lorenzo Nebbiolo-barbera Gaja
Wonderfully fragrant, with floral, berry and mineral aromas that turn to minerals on the palate. Full-bodied, with lovely polished tannins and a beautiful ripe fruit and mint aftertaste. This is a wine with wonderful balance, yet powerful. Best after 2007.
1995 tends to be a good rather than great vintage in Piedmont, but Gajas sensational 1995s are among the stars of the vintage. This wine possesses extremely saturated dark ruby/purple colors, almost... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1995 Gaja Sori San Lorenzo 750ml
The multi-faceted 1998 Sori San Lorenzo offers up notes of lead pencil, smoke, tobacco, tar, rose petals, black fruits, and espresso. Already incredibly expressive, soft, sexy, and voluptuous, jammy fruits infused with toasty oak cascade over the palate. This easily understood, seamless, pure, classic 1998 should drink well for 20ndash;25 years.
Serious dark color, with meaty, earthy aromas that blow off to ultraripe and exotic fruit. Fresh truffles and porcini. Almost Port-like in the end. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and a long, long, caressing finish. Solid. This was the first of Gajarsquo;s single-vineyard Barbarescos to be vinified separately, in 1967. Best after 2010.
Chocolate, coffee, smoke, licorice, and tobacco characteristics are found in the complex, deep purple-colored 1998 Sori Tilden. Surprisingly seductive for such a young wine, it exhibits abundant aromatic fireworks, fabulous fruit concentration, a layered opulence, more intensity, glycerin, and depth than the Costa Russi, and a spectacularly long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002ndash;2025.
Terrific aromas of wild berries, plums, flowers and fresh herbs. Full-bodied and very chewy, yet refined and very reserved. Already tight and asleep, but it will reward enormously those who are patient. Built for aging. The best Sorigrave; San Lorenzo since the extraordinary 1989. Best after 2007.
Therersquo;s harmony and grandeur to this red, with loads of fresh raspberry, plus violet, lilac and mint. Full-bodied, with velvety, rich tannins and a long finish. Refined and very well-done. Best after 2005.
