Tasting Notes and Scores
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.
Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate #203, Oct 2012)
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. Better in 2015.
Silky and gracious on the palate, the 2009 Sorì San Lorenzo looks to be a wine that will drink well with just a few years of cellaring. This is a decidedly floral, lifted yet radiant wine with terrific balance and plenty of the sexiness that defines the very best wines of the year.
