Gaja Sori San Lorenzo Barbaresco

This red wine has dense aromas of  quince compote and strawberry jam. It is extremely rich showing red apple and pomegranate, together with notes of fully-ripe strawberry and blackberry. The first taste is reviving, a persistent feeling touches every part of the mouth, leaving a refreshing and powerful sensation. The tannins are easily detectable but silky.

The pioneering Gaja family has been making wines for five generations, starting in Piedmont in 1859. Their name is synonymous with innovation and each generation has brought something new.

It was 2nd generation Giovanni who acquired the three Barbaresco crus Sori San Lorenzo, Sori Tildin and Costa Russi, which are widely regarded as three of the best single vineyard Barbarescos.

The 2016 vintage is one of the best of the 21st century for the wines of Piedmont, and that is certainly reflected in these single vineyard Barbarescos.

The Sori San Lorenzo vineyard is just over 3 hectares. It neighbours the old town centre and sits at an altitude of 250 metres, facing south. The soil consists of clayey-calcareous marls and the vines are 50 years old on average. The wine undergoes around three weeks fermentation and maceration prior to 24 months ageing in oak.
