      Barbaresco “Sorì San Lorenzo” DOP 2015

      Sorì San Lorenzo als verführerischer Barbaresco in funkelnd sattem Rubin. Das Bouquet kraftvoll, kompakt und maskulin nach Teer, etwas Lakritze und viel reifer Frucht. Am Gaumen wunderbar seidiges, sehr dichtes Tannin, satter vielschichtiger Geschmack und endlos lang. Verspricht enormes Entwicklungspotenzial. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Glänzendes Rubin mit feinem Granatschimmer. Sehr fein angelegte Nase, viel baumfrische Kirschen, etwas Waldhimbeere, im Hintergrund feine Würze. Am Gaumen viel kraftvolles, dichtmaschiges Tannin, hat zugleich aber auch feinen süßen Schmelz, sehr klar gezeichnet, mit Noten nach reifen Zwetschken und Himbeeren, im Finale langer Nachhall, überaus geschliffen." Falstaff

      "Rich, layered, black cherry, tar and engine oil with a petrichor minerality. Tangy acidity, rounded tannins, medium body and long intensity. Incredibly elaborate, translucent like fine china and delicate yet full of beauty. Superb length." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo is endowed with serious concentration and power. In 2015, some of the site signatures that make Sorì San Lorenzo so distinctive are not especially apparent. It will be interesting to see how and when they develop. To be sure Sorì San Lorenzo comes across as not fully put together and also somewhat in conflict with the approach that drives today's Gaja wines." VINOUS

      "This celebrated vineyard site has more magnesium in its soils and that may be why you get such a strong mineral note. The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo offers a complex bouquet with dark fruit, crushed mineral and grilled herb. This wine is very robust in terms of structure and therefore needs extra time in the bottle before it finds its proverbial sweet spot. You need patience to reap those excellent benefits. Drink after 2022." Robert Parker

      "The Sorí San Lorenzo vineyard is situated close to the Tanaro River, which undoubtedly helps moderate the temperature and initiates an earlier flowering period. Its sandy limestone soil provides perfect drainage and produces good tannin structure. This wine has depth, concentration and sweet primary fruit, with a touch of violet, meat, sweet cherry and wild raspberry. Lovely, polished tannins with some grip. It has benefitted from a slightly longer maceration, as well as eight months in barriques – seamlessly suffused into the wine – before spending the rest of the ageing period in large oak barrels." Decanter

      "The aromas are mesmerizing with sandalwood, cedar, roses and dried strawberries. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with lots of pretty fruit and ultra-fine yet powerful tannins. Goes on for minutes. This needs three to five years of bottle age." James Suckling

      "A bright, fruity version, boasting strawberry, cherry, floral, mineral and tobacco flavors, this is dense, solidly structured and vibrant, with a lingering, racy aftertaste. Very complex and well-balanced" Wine Spectator

    • Barbaresco "Costa Russi" DOP 2015

      Barbaresco “Costa Russi” DOP 2015

      Barbaresco Costa Russi mit fruchtig-würzigem Bouquet und einer gut eingebundenen Holznote. Am Gaumen sehr kraftvoll, hervorragend strukturiert und mit einem ätherischen Ausdruck von dunkler Frucht, Rauch, Lakritze, Teer und Menthol. Und dann das Finale, das buchstäblich eine Ewigkeit dauert. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Funkelndes, mitteldichtes Rubin-Granat. Zeigt sich in der Nase etwas zurückhaltend, nach Rhabarber, frisch gehacktem Fleisch, dahinter nach dunklen Kirschen. Öffnet sich mit dichtem, griffigem Tannin, herzhaft und zupackend, dunkelbeerige Frucht, fest und zupackend, wirkt noch sehr jung, im Finale noch recht ruppig." Falstaff

      "Delicate red fruit and violet scent. Curiously intense nose, with concentrated aromas yet a sense of lightness and lift. On the palate there’s dark chocolate, fig, coffee and toasted piquant spices. Really fine, sculpted tannin. Finishes with bitter black-olive notes." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Costa Russi was about to be bottled before I tasted it. Like the other wines from this warm vintage, you are treated to extra plushness and roundness with dark berry fruit intensity. This wine also offers unexpected mineral tones that come off as crushed oyster shell and talc powder. These add to the drying, almost nervous, tension you feel in the mouth." Robert Parker

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Costa Russi is once again striking in 2015. Vertical and lifted, with tremendous energy, the 2015 has so much to offer. Once the most easygoing of the three Barbaresco crus, Costa Russi has inched up in quality in recent years. The 2015 shows the suave mid-palate and raciness that is so typical of this wine, and yet it also has much more obvious structural underpinnings than once was the case. I can't wait to see how it ages." VINOUS

      "High density vines planted in a south-facing amphitheatre made for perfect ripening in 2015. This is substantial and fleshy with a deeper colour. Beautiful scents of peony and lily, followed by exquisite bramble fruit combined with raspberry coulis and a twist of pepper. The fruit is slightly darker than the other Gaja Barbaresco wines from this vintage, with a touch of spice and savouriness. Superb expression, bounce, freshness and charm. The tannins are deceptively soft and generous, this is wonderful now but will be even better in a decade." Decanter

      "Wow. Such depth in the nose of strawberries, flowers and hints of raw meat. Crushed stones, too. Full body, fine and dusty tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows structure and finesse." James Suckling

      "Aromas of rose, violet, red berry and baking spice mingle with a whiff of menthol on the nose of this compelling, gorgeous red. The vibrant, full-bodied palate is all about flair and finesse, delivering crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and a hint of tobacco, all framed by taut, fine-grained tannins. Young and intense, it will be ideal after a few more years of aging, but will continue to develop for decades." (Cellar Selection) Wine Enthusiast

    • Barbaresco "Sorì San Lorenzo" DOP 2016

      Barbaresco “Sorì San Lorenzo” DOP 2016

      Funkelnd sattes Rubin mit Granatreflexen. Im Bouquet kraftvoll, kompakt und maskulin nach Teer, etwas Lakritze und viel reifer Frucht. Am Gaumen wunderbar seidiges, sehr dichtes Tannin, satter vielschichtiger Geschmack und endlos lang. Verspricht enormes Entwicklungspotenzial. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Leuchtendes, intensives Rubingranat. Sehr fein gezeichnete Noten, viel reife Frucht, vor allem Zwetschke und Himbeere, dazu etwas Gojibeeren, etwas Gewürznelken, wirkt sehr geschliffen. In Ansatz und Verlauf sehr fein und geschliffen, zeigt feines Tannin in vielen Schichten, salzig, im hinteren Verlauf dann fester Druck, strömt lange dahin." Falstaff

      "The great expectations for 2016 are made real in this wine. San Lorenzo is usually extremely youthful in its fruit expression, with an amazing tension of fruit and acidity. The spiciness of oak is still evident here, with a toasty, chocolatey, liquorice character. The tannins are refined with the typical dusty finish of Nebbiolo. This shows great elegance and will develop for decades." Decanter

      "If the Barbaresco Costa Russi expresses itself with purity and grace, the 2016 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo struts out stacked and tall. It has firmer textural support and is not as timid or as withholding as the Costa Russi. The Sorì San Lorenzo site is located closest to the warm air currents that travel down the Tanaro River valley, and this vineyard site is always the first to ripen and be harvested. You get a stronger mineral note here with iron rust, pencil shaving and potting soil intertwined with the primary fruit, showing dazzlingly intricate complexity and depth." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo is an eternal wine that will need 10-15 years in bottle to truly come around. Sorì San Lorenzo is often a big, virile wine. There is plenty of heft to the 2016, but at the same time, I also find an element of refinement and nuance that Sorì San Lorenzo has rarely, if ever, shown. Black cherry, cloves, menthol, licorice, gravel and incense are some of the many aromas and flavor that meld together in this dramatic and dramatically beautiful Barbaresco from the Gaja family. The Sorì San Lorenzo just explodes on the finish, with an array of aromas, flavors and textures that will leave readers weak at the knees. The 2016 is an outrageously beautiful, vivid wine of real gravitas and power." Vinous

      "Glorious aromas of ripe strawberries, cherries and orange peel with flowers and stones and some incense. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with fantastic depth of fruit and ripe tannins. It goes on for minutes. One of the most structured Sori San Lorenzos in a long time." James Suckling

      Barbaresco “Costa Russi” DOP 2016

      Funkelndes, mitteldichtes Rubin-Granat. Barbaresco Costa Russi mit fruchtig-würzigem Bouquet und einer gut eingebundenen Holznote. Am Gaumen sehr kraftvoll, hervorragend strukturiert und mit einem ätherischen Ausdruck von dunkler Frucht, Rauch, Lakritze, Teer und Menthol. Und dann das Finale, das buchstäblich eine Ewigkeit dauert. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Leuchtendes Rubingranat mit hellem Rand. Sehr klare und einprägsame Nase, eröffnet mit Noten nach Himbeeren und Kirschen, dazu etwas Gewürznelken und Ingwer. Am Gaumen viel süßer Schmelz, gepaart mit dichtem, aber feinmaschigem Tannin, spannt einen sehr weiten Bogen, im Finale viel Druck." Falstaff

      "Just mid ruby and a shade deeper than the straight Barbaresco. Very deep and concentrated and complex on the nose. Cherry and raspberry with a savoury edge. The palate is packed with red fruit and bags of fine sandy tannins, but it is all still embryonic. Elegant and poised yet firmly structured. Beautifully balanced. A wine like a sculpture." Jancis Robinson

      "Costa Russi is a relatively cool site, and even in this exceptional vintage there's a minty tone on the nose. There are intense raspberry and redcurrant aromas, and a fragrance of roses. The attack is suave but very concentrated, with powerful tannins. This has heft as well as tension, and it's oaky and powerful. It clearly needs time to relinquish its grip but it has underlying intensity of fruit, and terrific length." Decanter

      "The 2016 Barbaresco Costa Russi is a very botanical wine in terms of its aromas, with lovely perfumes of rose, elderflower, sambuco and anise seed, along with a touch of glycerine. It then follows up with some sweetness that feels very embracing in this wine. This is the more ephemeral, delicate and floral member of the extended Barbaresco family from Gaja, with a crunchy tannic bite, but nothing too severe. There is a really good vitality and energy to this very expressive wine. Costa Russi remains the smallest of Gaja's single-vineyard wines." Robert Parker

      "Beautiful dried strawberries, flowers and cedar with hints of tar. Full body, round and rich tannins with lots of cedar, tar and tobacco, as well as a hint of chocolate powder. Lovely, long and caressing finish. Gorgeous again. Better after 2022." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Barbaresco Costa Russi is ripe, creamy and enveloping, as it so often is, and yet also preserves the super classic sense of structure that runs through all these wines. In 2016, Costa Russi has an extra touch of mid-palate sweetness that gives the wine its sense of immediacy. Succulent red cherry, rosewater, kirsch, mint and dried flowers meld together in the glass. Soft and sensual, with tons of allure, Costa Russi is another winner from Gaja. Time in the glass brings out the wine's density and tannins, both of which it has in spades." Vinous

      Barbaresco “Sorì Tildin” DOP 2016

      Funkelndes Rubin mit feinem Granatschimmer. Sorì Tildin verbindet den Terroirausdruck der Nebbiolotraube mit einem seidigen, reichhaltigen Geschmack voller Sinnlichkeit und Kraft. Öffnet sich mit prächtigen, nuancenreichen Aromen, die zu einem ausdrucksstarken Kern reifer roter Früchte führen. Fokussiert und raffiniert, mit außergewöhnlicher Länge und von femininer Eleganz. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Funkelndes Rubingranat mit hellem Rand. Sehr präsente und intensive Nase, eröffnet mit Noten nach Waldhimbeeren und Erdbeeren, dann etwas Rosenblätter, im Hintergrund ein Hauch Leder, der das Ganze spannend macht. Vielschichtig am Gaumen, sehr konzentriert, zeigt sich zugleich sehr geschliffen und mit viel Saftigkeit versehen, sehr langer Nachhall, ein Gedicht!" Falstaff

      "Mid ruby. Great focus and purity on the nose. Gorgeous, perfumed raspberry with minerally, savoury nose in the background. Gorgeous balance of concentrated red fruit that is still very much embryonic and a super-fine layer of long tannins. Contained yet lots of depth. Elegant, austere perfumed fruit finish. Quite spectacular but not ready by far." Jancis Robinson

      "Extremely perfumed aromas of dried flowers, dried strawberries and pumice, as well as tar, following through to a full body, with chewy and polished tannins and a long, juicy finish. Quite broad tannins. Dusty texture. Drink after 2021." James Suckling

      "Here's a wonderfully spicy and opulent rendition of Nebbiolo and another very full and rich Barbaresco from Gaja. The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is open, more concentrated and structured. There are pretty floral notes of rose hip or wild rose in this generous wine of broad scope. We're talking about smaller fruit here, with plums, cassis, blackberry and plenty of power. Everything came to perfect maturity in this 2016 vintage, representing that rare merge of quantity and quality. This is what you get from the dense soils of the warm, south-facing Sorì Tildìn site and similar ones where the terrain can keep the moisture locked in. The 2016 growing season was also marked by sharp diurnal shifts, and rainfall was well-timed to occur when it was needed most." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is a fabulous, incredibly complete wine that soars out of the glass with explosive structure and vertical lift. The tannins are very much present, but also matched beautifully by the wine's aromatic intensity and overall drive. Dark macerated cherry, spice, leather, licorice, plum and mocha add darker shades of nuance. In 2016, Sorì Tildìn is a bit more brooding and bigger than it often is, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced. It is quite simply a majestic wine of real grandeur and total class, but it is not obvious. Sorì Tildìn will appeal most to readers who understand what the truest essence of Nebbiolo is all about. In a word: magnificent!" Vinous

      “Alteni di Brassica” Sauvignon Bianco Langhe DOP 2017 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Alteni di Brassica - sein Name alteni, Steinmauern, die die Rebgärten begrenzen und brassica, eine gelbe Frühlingsblume der Region deutet keineswegs auf ein Mauerblümchendasein hin. Vielmehr sind sie Synonym für den ersten Sauvignon Blanc der Region, den Angelo Gaja seit 1983 anbaut. Ein höchst eleganter Wein, der mit aromatischem Bouquet, feiner Frucht, viel Tiefe und schöner Länge überzeugt. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Langhe Alteni di Brassica (a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc) offers tonic freshness, zesty citrus, white peach and crushed oyster shell. The harvest came early in this hot growing season with the grapes coming off the vines as early as August 17th. That early picking date served to keep the aromas fresh and the fruit crunchy. Gaia Gaja tells me that the fruit was super concentrated in this vintage, and the clusters were so small she called them "bonsai grapes." In addition to the concentrated aromas, the wine also shows a level of freshness that comes as a very pleasant surprise. Evidently, the acidity was also concentrated into those tiny berries."

      Komplexer und vielschichtiger Klassiker vom Altmeister des Nebbiolo aus dem Piemont. In der Nase Zedernholz, Pflaume, rote Früchte, Unterholz und etwas Rosenduft. Ausgewogener, würziger Geschmack, die Tannine fest und das Finish präzise und lang. Dieses muskulöse Monument von einem Rotwein braucht unbedingt noch einige Jahre Flaschenreife, mit etwas Geduld wird er sich in pure Eleganz verwandeln! SUPERIORE.DE

      "I tasted this wine over two sittings, one at the winery and one at my home office a few weeks later. Although I can't claim any extraordinary differences between the two sessions, I noticed a few minimal shifts that are essential to understanding the wine's future aging ability. The 2016 Barbaresco starts off slow at first, showing a small margin of aromatic evolution in the glass. But come back two hours later, and you can almost hear the soft sounds of the symphony playing just below the surface. The 2016 vintage is characterized by the solid intensity and firmness of its aromas, which transcend fruit and veer toward balsamic herb, licorice, tar and smoke instead. The tannins offer a moment of sweetness and softness, before you are aware of their undeniable firmness. In all, there is a certain glossiness or satiny quality to the mouthfeel that underlines the wine's carefully crafted integration. I would describe this as a classic and also a somewhat austere Barbaresco that fully deserves extra cellar time to stretch those tight muscles and grow in volume. This wine will award those who wait." Robert Parker

      "This gorgeous red evokes rose, strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit, shaded by tobacco, tar and wild thyme notes. Pure, sleek and intense, with a firm base of tannins and vibrant acidity for support. This should evolve beautifully. Be patient." Wine Spectator

      "Gaja's 2016 Barbaresco is positively stellar. A wine of poise and grace, the 2016 has so much to offer. Expressive spice and floral notes open up first, but what really stands out is the wine's nuance and delineation. There is a sense of translucency to the 2016 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, mint, cinnamon and rose petal develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. Quite simply, the 2016 is one of the very finest Gaja Barbarescos in recent memory. This is such a gorgeous wine. Don't miss it" Vinous

      Barbaresco von Gaja mit blumigen Aromen, Noten von hellen roten Früchten, Menthol und Lakritze. Sehr klar und vollmundig im Geschmack, tolle Frucht. Ganz klassisch gebaut mit bemerkenswerter Eleganz. Die Tannine sind noch quirlig und erfordern wie jedes Jahr ein wenig Geduld. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Verführerischer Duft von Steinobst, Kräutern und Blüten. Perfekt ausbalanciert am Gaumen, die Säure präsentiert sich akzentuiert, die Gerbstoffe sind robust, im Abgang mineralisch-salzige Aromen in Kombination mit viel Frucht und Finesse." Vinum

      "Leuchtendes Rubin-Granat. Dichte und sehr präsente Nase, satte Noten nach reifem Pfirsich, etwas Rhabarber, dann Himbeere. Viel süße, reife Frucht, nach dunklen Kirschen und Himbeeren, öffnet sich mit präsentem, dichtem Tannin, baut sich lange auf, im Finale fester Druck." Falstaff

      "The 2015 Barbaresco was to be bottled a week after I tasted this sample for review. Gaia Gaja was waiting for the right moon before commencing bottling. This vintage is not unlike the 2005 growing season that saw a good amount of rain in spring and scorching heat in the summer. The risk of downy mildew made vintners extra vigilant. Although the 2015 vintage was not ideal for color fixing Nebbiolo (indeed, this wine is slightly less intense in terms of its color saturation), it did prove an important year for power, structure and dry extract. This is a full and generous expression with a fine, loose texture and rich fruit flavors." Robert Parker

      "Gaja's 2015 Barbaresco is gorgeous. Deep, pliant and resonant, the 2015 exudes class from the very first taste. Today, the aromatics are not especially open or expressive, but it is the wine's depth and overall sense of harmony that really carry the day. Hints of orange peel, spice and rosewater give the 2015 an exotic aromatic top register that is hugely appealing. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. The 2015 is a wonderfully complete and harmonious wine, but it really does need a few years in the cellar to fully unwind." VINOUS

      "Meticulous vineyard work on the 14 parcels that are the source of this blend has given outstanding results. The aromatic nose is packed with generous ripe red fruits, and it's beautifully polished and stylish. The palate is rich, full-bodied and rounded. There's concentration and power, and it's very spicy and assertive, with impressive punch and drive. Truly imposing." Decanter

      "A rich and layered Barbaresco with cedar and plums, as well as light leather and rose aromas that follow to a full yet balanced palate and a chewy finish. Very polished. Drink in 2020, but already beautiful." James Suckling

      "A combination of savory and fruit elements, this red reveals cherry, berry, eucalyptus, menthol, tar and mineral flavors. Firms up, with monolithic tannins locking this tight. Patience is required." Wine Spectator

    • Barbaresco DOCG 2016 <br>6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Barbaresco DOCG 2016 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Komplexer und vielschichtiger Klassiker vom Altmeister des Nebbiolo aus dem Piemont. In der Nase Zedernholz, Pflaume, rote Früchte, Unterholz und etwas Rosenduft. Ausgewogener, würziger Geschmack, die Tannine fest und das Finish präzise und lang. Dieses muskulöse Monument von einem Rotwein braucht unbedingt noch einige Jahre Flaschenreife, mit etwas Geduld wird er sich in pure Eleganz verwandeln! SUPERIORE.DE

      "I tasted this wine over two sittings, one at the winery and one at my home office a few weeks later. Although I can't claim any extraordinary differences between the two sessions, I noticed a few minimal shifts that are essential to understanding the wine's future aging ability. The 2016 Barbaresco starts off slow at first, showing a small margin of aromatic evolution in the glass. But come back two hours later, and you can almost hear the soft sounds of the symphony playing just below the surface. The 2016 vintage is characterized by the solid intensity and firmness of its aromas, which transcend fruit and veer toward balsamic herb, licorice, tar and smoke instead. The tannins offer a moment of sweetness and softness, before you are aware of their undeniable firmness. In all, there is a certain glossiness or satiny quality to the mouthfeel that underlines the wine's carefully crafted integration. I would describe this as a classic and also a somewhat austere Barbaresco that fully deserves extra cellar time to stretch those tight muscles and grow in volume. This wine will award those who wait." Robert Parker

      "This gorgeous red evokes rose, strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit, shaded by tobacco, tar and wild thyme notes. Pure, sleek and intense, with a firm base of tannins and vibrant acidity for support. This should evolve beautifully. Be patient." Wine Spectator

      "Gaja's 2016 Barbaresco is positively stellar. A wine of poise and grace, the 2016 has so much to offer. Expressive spice and floral notes open up first, but what really stands out is the wine's nuance and delineation. There is a sense of translucency to the 2016 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, mint, cinnamon and rose petal develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. Quite simply, the 2016 is one of the very finest Gaja Barbarescos in recent memory. This is such a gorgeous wine. Don't miss it" Vinous

    • "Gaia & Rey" Chardonnay Langhe DOP 2017 <br>6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      “Gaia & Rey” Chardonnay Langhe DOP 2017 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Für diesen Wein standen Gajas Tochter Gaia und die Großmutter Rey mit ihren Namen Pate: Wie ein goldenes Geschmeide liegt Gaia & Rey im Glas und entfaltet einen balsamischen Fruchtduft von gelben Pfirsichen, Melone und Banane. Im Geschmack werden Alkoholkomponente und Holzeinsatz perfekt von mineralischen und würzigen Anteilen gebändigt. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine was first made in 1983, and back then, no malolactic fermentation occurred. Jump forward in time to the 2017 Langhe Gaia & Rey, and this is another vintage in which malo did not start. (Partial malolactic returns in 2018). Since those first years of production, the oak usage has also been tweaked, now with less barrique in favor of more botte grande. Thanks to these changes, the aromatic profile of this wine veers toward citrus and rich tropical fruit, especially in a warm vintage such as this. However counterintuitive, this edition also shows a very bright and precise touch of acidity that serves to give the wine balanced and mouth-cleansing salinity." Robert Parker

    • Barbaresco "Sorì Tildin" DOP 2015 <br>MAGNUM in Original-Holzkiste

      Barbaresco “Sorì Tildin” DOP 2015 · MAGNUM in Original-Holzkiste

      Sorì Tildin verbindet den Terroirausdruck der Nebbiolotraube mit einem seidigen, reichhaltigen Geschmack voller Sinnlichkeit und Kraft. Öffnet sich mit prächtigen, nuancenreichen Aromen, die zu einem ausdrucksstarken Kern reifer roter Früchte führen. Fokussiert und raffiniert, mit außergewöhnlicher Länge und von femininer Eleganz. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Funkelndes Rubin mit feinem Granatschimmer. Fein gezeichnete Nase mit Noten nach Rhabarber, Haselnüssen, Himbeere und Zwetschke. Dicht und zupackend am Gaumen, öffnet sich mit viel straffem Tannin, herzhaft, zeigt viel Power, im Finale langer Nachhall, überaus saftig." Falstaff

      "More prominent fruit on the nose than their Sorì San Lorenzo, with a redcurrant scent a bit like Pinot Noir from California or Victoria. Quite heady on the palate with powerful core fruit and dark chocolate character on the finish. Hedonistic – this is Nebbiolo on parade. Long and engaging on the finish, but with quite a lot of alcohol fumes too." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is dense and compact with smoky layers of black fruit, crushed mineral and black truffle. This growing site always produces robust and opulent wines, but these characteristics are hammered home even more so in the hot 2015 vintage. The wine graciously offers enough acidity to achieve balance and remind you of its pedigree. Barbaresco usually opens and evolves faster than Barolo. I think you can count on this wine to reach the start of its drinking window within the next decade." Robert Parker

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is bright, perfumed and lifted in feel. Sorì Tildìn is always the most delicate of the single vineyard wines. In 2015, it is also a touch lithe. Bright red cherry, mint, pine and floral notes gradually develop in the glass. In two tastings separated by about six weeks, the Sorì Tildìn was uncharacteristically austere and compact, its considerable character notwithstanding. Sorì Tildìn is usually a wine of sensuality, but I don't see much of that at this admittedly early stage." VINOUS

      "High density vines planted in a south-facing amphitheatre made for perfect ripening in 2015. This is substantial and fleshy with a deeper colour. Beautiful scents of peony and lily, followed by exquisite bramble fruit combined with raspberry coulis and a twist of pepper. The fruit is slightly darker than the other Gaja Barbaresco wines from this vintage, with a touch of spice and savouriness. Superb expression, bounce, freshness and charm. The tannins are deceptively soft and generous, this is wonderful now but will be even better in a decade." Decanter

      "Almost seamless now, this red is hitting its stride, exuding cherry, strawberry, floral, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors. Offers great structure and length, with a firm, minerally aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "Aromas of asphalt and tar that turn to dried strawberries, plums and citrus fruit. Full body, yet agile and very refined with a beautiful balance of fruit, tannins and acidity. Extremely persistent and focused finish. All about harmony and strength." James Suckling

    • Barbaresco "Sorì San Lorenzo" DOP 2015 <br>MAGNUM in Original-Holzkiste

      Barbaresco “Sorì San Lorenzo” DOP 2015 · MAGNUM in Original-Holzkiste

      Sorì San Lorenzo als verführerischer Barbaresco in funkelnd sattem Rubin. Das Bouquet kraftvoll, kompakt und maskulin nach Teer, etwas Lakritze und viel reifer Frucht. Am Gaumen wunderbar seidiges, sehr dichtes Tannin, satter vielschichtiger Geschmack und endlos lang. Verspricht enormes Entwicklungspotenzial. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Glänzendes Rubin mit feinem Granatschimmer. Sehr fein angelegte Nase, viel baumfrische Kirschen, etwas Waldhimbeere, im Hintergrund feine Würze. Am Gaumen viel kraftvolles, dichtmaschiges Tannin, hat zugleich aber auch feinen süßen Schmelz, sehr klar gezeichnet, mit Noten nach reifen Zwetschken und Himbeeren, im Finale langer Nachhall, überaus geschliffen." Falstaff

      "Rich, layered, black cherry, tar and engine oil with a petrichor minerality. Tangy acidity, rounded tannins, medium body and long intensity. Incredibly elaborate, translucent like fine china and delicate yet full of beauty. Superb length." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo is endowed with serious concentration and power. In 2015, some of the site signatures that make Sorì San Lorenzo so distinctive are not especially apparent. It will be interesting to see how and when they develop. To be sure Sorì San Lorenzo comes across as not fully put together and also somewhat in conflict with the approach that drives today's Gaja wines." VINOUS

      "This celebrated vineyard site has more magnesium in its soils and that may be why you get such a strong mineral note. The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo offers a complex bouquet with dark fruit, crushed mineral and grilled herb. This wine is very robust in terms of structure and therefore needs extra time in the bottle before it finds its proverbial sweet spot. You need patience to reap those excellent benefits. Drink after 2022." Robert Parker

      "The Sorí San Lorenzo vineyard is situated close to the Tanaro River, which undoubtedly helps moderate the temperature and initiates an earlier flowering period. Its sandy limestone soil provides perfect drainage and produces good tannin structure. This wine has depth, concentration and sweet primary fruit, with a touch of violet, meat, sweet cherry and wild raspberry. Lovely, polished tannins with some grip. It has benefitted from a slightly longer maceration, as well as eight months in barriques – seamlessly suffused into the wine – before spending the rest of the ageing period in large oak barrels." Decanter

      "The aromas are mesmerizing with sandalwood, cedar, roses and dried strawberries. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with lots of pretty fruit and ultra-fine yet powerful tannins. Goes on for minutes. This needs three to five years of bottle age." James Suckling

      "A bright, fruity version, boasting strawberry, cherry, floral, mineral and tobacco flavors, this is dense, solidly structured and vibrant, with a lingering, racy aftertaste. Very complex and well-balanced" Wine Spectator
