    The 1989 Sori Tilden is a monument to the Nebbiolo grape, as well as to Barbaresco. Not surprisingly, it is the most backward, tannic, muscular, and masculine of the Gaja Barbarescos. With tons of tannin, and a broad, rich, fleshy, expansive personality, it is the least flattering. Do not touch a bottle for at least 6-7 years. It should last until 2020.

    Ripe and succulent, so plush it is almost sweet, offering bright, lively plum, black cherry and raspberry flavors shaded with toast, sweet vanilla and spice overtones, an absolutely gorgeous wine that remains elegant and supple despite its muscular core. 890 cases made.

  • Plain and simple, Angelo Gaja is the biggest name in Italian wine. The Gaja winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by four generations of the Gaja family, with Angelo Gaja running the operation since the 1960s. Angelo is credited with modernizing Barbaresco and Barolo wines, having pioneered the use of controlled-temperature fermentation (for reducing oxidation) and small-cask aging (to stabilize color and preserve fruitiness). Gaja is most well-known for his Barbarescos, though the three most sought-after wines, Costa Russi, Sori Tildin and Sori San Lorenzo have recently been reclassified from Barbaresco DOCG to Langhe DOC, giving Gaja more flexibility in the winemaking process. Strikingly profound and built to live for decades, Gaja's wines display opulence and elegance unmatched elsewhere in Italy. These wines, while harnessing modern technology, have a long-established track record, ensuring they will perform well both in the glass and on the auction block. For any collector considering Italian wines, Gaja should be the first name on the list.
