Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Classically structured, brooding, and powerful, the ’13 Sorì San Lorenzo is a towering expression of Nebbiolo. Pure red and blue fruits dance on a bed of fresh-cut herbs, potpourri, crushed rocks, tar and smoke. This is a finessed, gorgeous wine that unfurls on the palate with tantalizing precision as it builds to a lingering finish. The first of the crus to be bottled individually in 1967, Sorì San Lorenzo typically requires the most patience of the three Gaja cru bottlings, but its intense aromatics, velvety mouth-feel and sensuous, complex palate reward a wine-lover’s restraint. 2013 saw the bottling of Sorì San Lorenzo as a mono-varietal Nebbiolo, as Gaja omitted the Barbera component; the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; then the wine ages for in a year each in barrique and botti before bottling.
