Gaja Nebbiolo Sori Tildin 1998

Gaja Nebbiolo Sori Tildin 750ML 1998       
Sku: 9507

Displays 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.

Tasting notes
Color: Deep purple
Nose: Complex aromas of toast, minerals, sour cherries, cedar, spices.
Palate: 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.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 95 points (Oct 2001)
Chocolate, coffee, smoke, licorice, and tobacco characteristics are found in the complex, deep purple-colored 1998 Sori Tildin. Surprisingly seductive for such a young wine, it exhibits abundant aromatic fireworks, fabulous fruit concentration, a layered opulence, more intensity, glycerin, and depth than the Costa Russi, and a spectacularly long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.
 Wine Spectator 94 points (Nov 15 2002)
Multidimensional nose of black licorice, berry and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, fresh and fruity finish. Best after 2005. 1,050 cases made. ľJS
