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 ...

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

Subtle aromas of rose and blackberry follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Chewy. Unfolds on the palate. Layered and beautiful. Refined yet structured. Best after 2013. 4,000 cases made. –JS

Best elements of the Nebbiolos - tastes of ripe strawberries, hints of vanilla and aromas of eucalyptus and roses.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Gaja’s 2005 Sori San Lorenzo is a dense, dark beauty of sensual, irresistible charm. This richly-textured, expansive wine flows with masses of ripe dark fruit, menthol, licorice and mineral in a sumptuous, full-bodied style. The use of oak is simply masterful here and the wine boasts extraordinary balance. I am not sure how he does it, but Angelo Gaja is easily Italy’s most consistently brilliant producer. For those who can afford it, this is another gem from Gaja. Readers should interpret my drinking windows with a large grain of salt. The 1990 Sor? San Lorenzo is still young, and the 1978 is amazingly fresh, so it is anyone’s guess as to when this wine might be actually “ready.” In the meantime, this wine is sure to provide enormous pleasure to those lucky enough to own it...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 in a year that was excellent but not profound...96." WA 11/08
