Gaja Sori San Lorenzo Langhe-Barbaresco 2011, Piedmont, Italy
PRESS: James Suckling - 98 points. "Superb aromas of dark fruit such as plums and berries with hints of white truffles. Fresh roses too. Full body, velvety tannins, yet firm and full of tension. Love the lemon and orange aftertaste. Great finish."

The Gaja Sori San Lorenzo 2011 displays deep red color with highly concentrated aromas of currant and black cherry fruit with a hint of coffee, in addition to aromas of fine herbs, minerals and exotic spices. Almost always the most powerful and austere of Gaja's five single-vineyard wines, requiring a longer time to fully develop. A very focused, concentrated wine with a long, lingering finish and refined tannins, it has excellent aging potential.
