Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95(+?)

($346) Ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of violet, minerals, smoke, game and coconut. A step up in flesh and richness from the Cos ta Russi. Very broad, dense and sweet but at the same time quite elegant and light on its feet. Very long and ripe on the aftertaste, with the wine's firm tannic structure covered by fruit. This has it all! (My bottle of the Sori San Lorenzo was similarly superb, combining great sweetness and depth of fruit, and communicating an impression of completeness; however, a close inspection of the bottle revealed that it was the 1998 vintage.)

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The 1999 Sorì Tildìn is a knockout wine. It offers a classic, expressive nose of flowers and spices and somewhat austere profile of sweet red fruit, minerals and menthol on a mid-weight frame. It is the hardest of these wines to read today, but I found myself coming back to it often and discovering new nuances with each taste. It is clearly a wine of much potential and should start to drink well in another few years and last until age 25-30. It will be a fascinating wine to follow.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Starts off a bit earthy but then turns to glorious, freshly cut flowers, with hints of crushed berries. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very refined. A special style for Sori Tildin. 1,050 cases made.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo


Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
