Gaja Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Sorì Tildìn 2005
"The 2005 Sori Tildin appears to be incredibly primary and youthful. Floral aromatics meld seamlessly into freshly cut roses, raspberries, licorice, tar and menthol. This graceful, feminine wine reveals tons of elegance and finesse in an understated style. Today the Sori Tildin shows a touch more oak than the other single-vineyard wines, which suggests it may not quite have the stuffing of the very finest vintages. Still, this remains a vibrant and very Piedmontese wine in need of only one thing, and that is a long slumber in the cellar...I was blown away by Angelo Gaja’s 2005 wines from Barbaresco. When all is said and done, Gaja may have well produced not the wine, but rather the wines of the vintage...95." WA 11/08
External Reviews for Gaja Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Sorì Tildìn
Best elements of the Nebbiolos - tastes of ripe strawberries, hints of vanilla and aromas of eucalyptus and roses.
Red-ruby. Pungent aromas of plum, earth, truffle, minerals and tea. Concentrated and sweet, with a distinctly higher-pitched quality than the Costa Russi; lively acids give the flavors more definition, but the firm tannins are a bit youthfully spiky ... Stephen Tanzer. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2005 Gaja, Angelo Sori Tildin 750ml
The purity of fruit in this young Nebbiolo is impressive, with a cedar, fresh mushroom and forest undertone. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit as well as toasty oak and milk chocolate. This is a wine that gives you lots at the finish. Best after 2014... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2005 Gaja, Angelo Sori Tildin 750ml
