Tasting Notes and Scores

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 30/06/2011

The 2000 Sori San Lorenzo is another of the standouts of the year. It remains quite youthful, with notable energy in its dark, brooding fruit and considerable tannin. Despite its sheer power, the 2000 isn’t as explosive as it can be. Still, there is little doubt the 2000 Sori San Lorenzo has the stuffing to age well for many years to come. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

Serious dark color, with meaty, earthy aromas that blow off to ultraripe and exotic fruit. Fresh truffles and porcini. Almost Port-like in the end. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and a long, long, caressing finish. Solid. This was the first of Gaja's single-vineyard Barbarescos to be vinified separately, in 1967. Best after 2010. 970 cases made. (James Suckling)
