Slightly bricking color with good depth. The nose jumps to a start with notes of toasted cinamon which is quickly joined by smoky speck, plumskin, matchstick, and notes of candle wax and incense. Just a touch lean in the mouth yet with lovely balance. Moves through the mouth with strong acidity and offers up lots of amarena cherry that benefits from a touch of sweetness up front and the cut of minerality on the finish. Fully mature and reasy to go.

96 Points - Wine Spectator"A very silky wine with berry, cedar and tobacco character. Full-bodied, with fine tannis and a fresh finish. Lovely. Seductive and racy. Very long indeed. Strength yet finesse. Best after 2007. (J.S.)"95 Points - Stephan Tanzer "Good full red-ruby. Rather mute on the nose, hinting only at plum. Then plummy, dense and deep, with strong acids giving the wine terrific grip. Notes of licorice, violet and minerals lift the wine's fruit. Comes across as the least filled-in of these three 2001s today, but this still needs time to harmonize. Most impressive today on the powerfully structured, slow-building finish."

A rich muscular style with black cherry plum smoke and spice aromas and flavors holding court. This is balanced and smooth in a modern style showing refinement and length on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2027.

Good full red. Pungent aromas of maraschino cherry minerals smoke and camphor; the most Barolo-like of Gaja s 2009s from the Barbaresco zone. The thickest and most concentrated too sweet and mouthfilling but very backward. The combination of sheer stuffing and medicinal reserve along with fine-grained dusty tannins and outstanding persistence suggests that this plump but youthful wine will age slowly and well. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

What a nose of truffles, orange peel and berries. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long chewy finish. This is big and structured. Needs at least four to five years of bottle age. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Gaja Sori San Lorenzo 3000ml

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

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOR Deep red AROMA Highly concentrated currant and black cherry fruit with a hint of coffee, in addition to aromas of fine herbs, minerals and exotic spices. TASTE Almost always the most powerful and austere of Gaja's five single-vineyard wines, requiring a longer time to fully develop. A very focused, concentrated wine with a long, lingering finish and refined tannins, it has excellent aging potential.
