Gaja Langhe Sori San Lorenzo 2008

Gaja Langhe Sori San Lorenzo 750ml 2008     
Sku: 1690541*

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 with a 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.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 95 points (Oct 2011)
Gaja’s 2008 Sori San Lorenzo is impeccable from start to finish. The 2008 is a round, seamless San Lorenzo with seemingly no hard edges and terrific overall balance. The signature aromas and flavors are there, as is the wine’s typical gravitas, yet the 2008 has an extra level of sweetness, its size notwithstanding. The wine possesses striking inner perfume and fabulous overall balance. The sheer excitement of the very finest years isn’t quite there, but this is a fine bottle just the same. An explosive, juicy finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033. ”
