Winemaker Notes: The Gaja Sori San Lorenzo displays deep red color with highly concentrated aromas of currant and black cherry fruit with a hint of coffee, in addition to aromas of fine herbs, minerals and exotic spices. 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.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - “Majestic aromas of crushed berry, meat, orange peel. Full body, very tannic yet ripe tannins and exquisite fruit. Amazing depth and density. They said they macerated a little more than normal because the fruit was perfect. A classic Nebbiolo that reminds me of the great 1996. Really cool. About 30% less production. Don't touch for five to ten years. A celebratory wine for Gaja's return to the Barbaresco appellation."


Decanter - "An exemplary 2013 with both tension and refinement. The nose is rich and ripe, with ample upfront cherry fruit. There's zest and vigour on the fresh, lifted palate, and although it's quite assertive, this young wine is not too dense and the sweet but not jammy fruit shines through. Taut and spicy, it has elegance, balance and good length."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Congratulations to the Gaja family and their 2013 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo. This is a sheer and powerful expression of Nebbiolo that boasts a very firm and precise textural quality. The wine is 100% Nebbiolo, as blended Barbera is no longer part of the Sorì San Lorenzo DNA. The tannins are sharply delineated with a crunchy snap that you feel on the palate. This should definitely serve to keep the wine firmly rooted and committed to a slow aging trajectory. That structural firmness is the defining characteristic of this wine, and that unique identity is even more evident now that this wine is officially classified as Barbaresco."
