Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Restrained, finessed, complex and dense, the ’05 Sorì San Lorenzo is a knockout. Ripe, juicy red and black fruits swirl in a mélange of wildflowers, scorched earth, pencil lead, and cypress; rich and broad-shouldered, this wine is just beginning to drink beautifully. Gaja’s Sorì San Lorenzo is the dark one of the trio, a brooding and romantic wine that has decades of drinking. The first of the Gaja crus to be bottled individually in 1967, Sorì San Lorenzo is among the first wines in the Langhe region to be vinified as a single-vineyard cru, and it's arguably the most important Barbaresco produced. A blend of 95% Nebbiolo and the remainder Barbera, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; then the wine ages for a year in barrique and in botti before bottling. This ’05 Sorì San Lorenzo is an extraordinary wine that will drink for decades.
