External Reviews for Barbaresco Sorì S. Lorenzo Nebbiolo-Barbera Gaja
International in style to the extent that itrsquo;s amazingly dense and filled with silky, ripe, fat tannins that just balloon on the palate, but itrsquo;s clearly Piedmontese in all that mineral, blood orange, lead-pencil and intriguing red- and blackberry character. Refined and elegant despite its full-bodied, rich personality. Slightly smoky, toasted complexity on the blackberry-packed finish. Drink now through 2015.
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.
The 2000 Sori San Lorenzo is, as always, the most complete of the three, more complex in aroma with the notes of anise, herbs, and spices more completely integrated with the fruit, the fullness and dimension of the flavors more perceptible, the finish longer and more authoritative. Drink: 2005ndash;2020.
Fantastic, world-class, silky-as-they-come red. Thick and dense, extracted but without heaviness, this elegant Barbaresco is packed to the brim with velvety tannins, red- and blackberry flavors and some tasteful, toasted, spicy notes. Palate-coating, smooth and long Nebbiolo. Drink now through 2015.
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.
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
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.
