Gaja Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn 2017
“Light ruby hued, the 2017 Barbaresco Sori Tildin is a nuanced, elegant Barbaresco offering lots of beautiful red and subtle blue fruits intermixed with notes of wildflowers, licorice, asphalt, tobacco, and dried spices. Aromatic, incredibly perfumed, and already complex, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a lengthy, seamless finish that carries plenty of salinity and freshness. It’s not a blockbuster, but it excels on its purity, freshness, and elegance, and it certainly has enough tannins for a long life. It didn’t show at its best until day two, so if you’re opening bottles any time soon, a healthy decant is recommended. It will ideally be given 5-7 years of bottle age to hit its early drink window and should evolve for 20+.”
