Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo 2009
Wine AdvocateGaja'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 EnthusiastThere'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.
Wine SpectatorA rich, muscular style, with black cherry, plum, smoke and spice aromas and flavors holding court. This is balanced and smooth, in a modern style, showing refinement and length on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2027. 200 cases imported.
