Sorì Tildìn delivers a round, subtly textured expression of Nebbiolo, and will age superbly for more than 40 years in exceptional vintages.
Like the Sorì San Lorenzo, Sorì Tildìn is widely considered one of Italy’s great growing sites. Purchased in 1967, the eight-acre vineyard is situated in the township of Barbaresco. It was first vinified as a single-vineyard wine in 1970 (reclassified as a Langhe DOC in 2000 like the Sorì San Lorenzo).
The vineyard is named after the beloved matriarch of the GAJA family, Clotilde Rey, daughter-in-law of founder Giovanni Gaja. Known for her strong personality, the adored Clotilde was affectionately known by her nickname Tildìn (teel-DEEN), a diminutive of her Christian name.
