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
The dark ruby/purple-colored, supple-texture 1998 Costa Russi possesses sweet, jammy raspberry and cherry fruit, medium to full body, gorgeous glycerin, low acidity, and a lightly tannic finish. Although large-sized, it has good finesse as well as beautifully pure fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2003ndash;2020.
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.
Here's a wine that transcends cultures, regions and varietals. La Tâche 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.

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.
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
Fabulous aromas of rose petals and cherries with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and an incredible finish. This is so fine and so long. A real beauty that grows and grows on the palate. Great Nebbiolo. Greatest Costa Russi ever, from 34-year-old vines. Best after 2010.
