Gaja Nebbiolo San Lorenzo 2000

Gaja Nebbiolo San Lorenzo 750ML 2000       
Sku: 11064

The word "Sorì" means a hilltop with a southern exposure, and San Lorenzo is the patron saint of Alba. When Angelo purchased the land from the church in 1964 he naturally named it Sorì San Lorenzo.

Tasting notes
Highly concentrated currant and black cherry fruit witha 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.

The 2000 Sori San Lorenzo is another of the standouts of the year. It remains quite youthful, with notable energy in its dark, brooding fruit and considerable tannin. Despite its sheer power, the 2000 isn’t as explosive as it can be. Still, there is little doubt the 2000 Sori San Lorenzo has the stuffing to age well for many years to come. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. ”

Serious dark color, with meaty, earthy aromas that blow off to ultraripe and exotic fruit. Fresh truffles and porcini. Almost Port-like in the end. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and a long, long, caressing finish. Solid. This was the first of Gaja's single-vineyard Barbarescos to be vinified separately, in 1967. Best after 2010. 970 cases made. –JS
