    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep purple in color, with complex aromas of toast, minerals, sour cherries, cedar and spices. This wine dispalys the roundest tasting profile of all Gaja single-vineyard wines. The rich body, subtle texture and fine, ripe tannins are typical for this wine of great finesse, the quintessential expression of the land and the Nebbiolo grape. This wine has extraordinary aging potential--more than forty years in outstanding vintages.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Sori Tildin is a fascinating wine. The vineyard sits just above Costa Russi, separated only by the road that leads to Alba. This is an especially imposing vintage for Sori Tildin. Over time, the wine’s signature nuances and details begin to emerge. A radiant, sensual personality rounds things out nicely. This is a great showing from Gaja. The 2009 shuts down quickly in the glass, and is likely to demand a measure of patience from readers. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.

    Elegant, fine and characterized by deep complexity, this celebrated bottling from Angelo Gaja offers dark nuances of plum, chocolate and dried tobacco, with delicate accents of ground licorice and herb. The long finish is powerful and generous. Drink after 2020. Cellar Selection.

    I love the nose to this wine with floral, blueberry and raspberries. Orange peel. Full-bodied, and chewy with an impressive texture of ripe tannins and a long finish. Very beautiful.

    Good full medium red. Inviting aromas of plum, redcurrant, dark raspberry, smoked meat and minerals, with lively floral lift. Then juicy and tight on entry, conveying a stronger impression of acidity but less early sweetness than the Costa Russi. There's plenty of alcohol here but also terrific depth of dark fruit, especially on the long back end. Serious tannins arrive late and give this suave wine a strong backbone for aging.

    International Wine Cellar

    The oak is well-integrated here in the form of sandalwood, bacon fat and smoke flavors, shading the cherry, licorice and tobacco notes. Firm, staying elegant and finishing with spice notes. Very long. Best from 2015 through 2028.
