WOTN. Superconcentrated, but smooth and balanced; ripe, cassis, dark red fruit, saddle leather. Unquestionably my favorite.
External Reviews for Gaja Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Sorì Tildìn
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.
Most impressive. Hard to tell it apart from the single-vineyard crus because itrsquo;s so massive while also offering an incredibly dense texture. Shows mineral, stonelike, spicy and black currant character, while some new oak plays subtly in the background. Firm tannins on the finish. Best from 2005 through 2015.
Multidimensional nose of black licorice, berry and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, fresh and fruity finish. Best after 2005.
Terrific aromas of ripe fruit, spices, licorice and blackberries. Full-bodied, with lots of ripe fruit and a lovely balance of round tannins and hints of oak. Very concentrated. Best after 2006.
Herersquo;s a wine that transcends cultures, regions and varietals. La Tacirc;che in Piedmont? Rutherford Cabernet? Balanced, with the sort of ripe, clean, pure fruit that most wine lovers (and winemakers) would kill for. Focused, opulent and elegant, packed with lightly toasted, slightly petrollike aromas and loads of cassis and blackberry flavors. Very firm, so cellar. Best from 2003 through 2026.
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
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.
