GAJA 2009 SAN LORENZO BARBARESCO

WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS "Gaja's 2009 Sori San Lorenzo, on the other hand, is much more typical in its expression. Layers of juicy dark cherries, menthol, spices, tar, licorice and graphite flow across the palate as this powerful, masculine wine opens up in the glass. Balsamic infused aromas and flavors develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity and the signature of this great terroir, indisputably one of Piemonte's very finest. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039."

WINE ENTHUSIAST 96 POINTS "There's always something magical about Gaja's Sorì San Lorenzo. It’s the intensity and fullness of the wine that penetrates to the back of the palate and offers many long minutes of persistency on the finish. The bouquet is redolent of black fruit, leather, spice, tar, licorice and dried herb."

JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS "Subtle and rich with raspberry and blueberry aromas and touches of peaches and lavender too. Full-bodied, with intense lavender and spice character with chocolate and fruit flavors. Long, long finish."

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 95 POINTS "Good full red. Pungent aromas of maraschino cherry, minerals, smoke and camphor; the most Barolo-like of Gaja's 2009s from the Barbaresco zone. The thickest and most concentrated too, sweet and mouthfilling but very backward. The combination of sheer stuffing and medicinal reserve along with fine-grained, dusty tannins and outstanding persistence suggests that this plump but youthful wine will age slowly and well."

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS "A rich, muscular style, with black cherry, plum, smoke and spice aromas and flavors holding court. Balanced and smooth, in a modern style, showing refinement and length on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2027."
