Cellar/Tasting Notes
The color of the Sori San Lorenzo is a deep red and the exhilarating concentrated aromas of currant and black cherry fruit is intermingled with hints of coffee as well as fine herbs, minerals and exotic spices. As the wine is powerful and opulent, time is a necessity in order for the wine structure to truly develop. The wine is very focused and concentrated with a long lingering finish and refined tannins.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 98
A banner wine for Gaja, the 2010 Sori San Lorenzo brings the infinite and ethereal aromas associated with Nebbiolo into startling focus and clarity. Again, like the Sori Tildin, the structure and tannic firmness of the wine will carry the wine forward over the years and decades ahead. It demands much more time until it fully blossoms. I walked through the San Lorenzo vineyard with Gaia Gaja and she showed me some of their recent activity. Every second row is planted with barley that acts as a natural rototiller given its aggressive root system. Borrowing other “New World” ideas, they’ve started compost piles with Californian red worms and are using (with less success, I’m told) wooden tree boxes to repopulate the birds. All of this must seem very odd to the neighbors
Antonio Galloni-Vinous (AG): 97
"Tar, smoke, licorice, incense, savory herbs, tobacco and new leather are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2010 Sorì San Lorenzo. The 2010 brings together all the best qualities of the vineyard in a huge, powerful style that is highly appealing. The pure intensity is classic San Lorenzo. This is by far the most site-representative of Gaja's three single-vineyard wines. Today the tannins are naturally imposing, but readers who can wait will be rewarded with a magnificent bottle."
