Wine Spectator ReviewWonderfully fragrant, with floral, berry and mineral aromas that turn to minerals on the palate. Full-bodied, with lovely polished tannins and a beautiful ripe fruit and mint aftertaste. This is a wine with wonderful balance, yet powerful.

The 2000 Sori San Lorenzo is, as always, the most complete of the three, more complex in aroma with the notes of anise, herbs, and spices more completely integrated with the fruit, the fullness and dimension of the flavors more perceptible, the finish longer and more authoritative. Drink: 2005ndash;2020.

Serious dark color, with meaty, earthy aromas that blow off to ultraripe and exotic fruit. Fresh truffles and porcini. Almost Port-like in the end. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and a long, long, caressing finish. Solid. This was the first of Gajarsquo;s single-vineyard Barbarescos to be vinified separately, in 1967. Best after 2010.

The multi-faceted 1998 Sori San Lorenzo offers up notes of lead pencil, smoke, tobacco, tar, rose petals, black fruits, and espresso. Already incredibly expressive, soft, sexy, and voluptuous, jammy fruits infused with toasty oak cascade over the palate. This easily understood, seamless, pure, classic 1998 should drink well for 20andndash;25 years.
