Gaja Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo 2017
“Also light ruby hued (all of the 2017s are on the lighter hued side), the 2017 Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo comes from a warmer terroir and was brought up in barrel. It has beautiful red fruits as well as complex notes of spring flowers, spice, and menthol. Playing in the elegant, seamless end of the spectrum, with impressive tannins, it has slightly more concentration compared to the Sori Tilden (which is normal for this cuvée) yet it still shows the more streamlined, elegant style shared by all the 2017s from Gaja. This beautiful, nuanced, complex Barbaresco needs 5-6 years of bottle age and will keep for 20+ years.”
