Gaja "Sori San Lorenzo" Barbaresco, Piedmont 1999
95 Points Vinous Media
Deep, saturated ruby-red. Brooding aromas of currant, minerals, tobacco, truffle and earth; strong aspect of medicinal austerity. Suave, bright and young; offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and powerful structure. Very rich, mouthfilling wine with even more power and thrust than the young 2000. Finishes with very fine, sweet tannins and outstanding persistence.
