Description Sub Region
 
Elegant yet powerful, mineral-laden yet boasting succulent fruit, intense yet finessed, the ’11 Sorì San Lorenzo is simply exquisite. Brooding black and juicy red fruit bursts from the glass with notes of tar, licorice, saddle leather, fresh-cut herbs, smoke and wildflowers in this expressive wine. The ’11 Sorì San Lorenzo is somewhat more approachable than usual, but this wine’s epic tannic structure makes it beautifully age-worthy. 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. A blend of 95% Nebbiolo and the remainder Barbera, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; then the wine ages in a year each in barrique and botti before bottling.
