Always a standout among Gaja’s five single-vineyard wines, Sorì San Lorenzo benefits from an excellent vintage to produce what will surely become a must-have bottle for collectors of Italian wine.

Gaja 2007 Sorì Tildin Nebbiolo (Langhe)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $440
This is an elegant Nebbiolo-based wine and arguably the most feminine of Gaja’s newest releases. There’s extreme balance and sophistication evident in the focused aromas of wild berry, white licorice, pressed violets and polished stone. The mouthfeel is tight, firm and those tannins need at least 10 more years to soften in your cellar. Beautiful.  — M.L.  (5/1/2011)

Gaja 2006 Sperss Nebbiolo (Langhe)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $255
Sperss (the name is inspired by the local word for “nostalgia”) is a vineyard located in the Barolo territory of Serralunga. Angelo Gaja adds 6% Barbera to the wine for brightness and freshness but the overall ensemble shows so much more than that. It delivers sophisticated softness and a velvety texture that is backed by exotic spice and loads of wild berry and…  — M.L.  (5/1/2011)

Sandrone 2001 Cannubi Boschis Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $135
Absolutely lovely. It starts off dense and tarry on the nose, with plum and chocolate fudge scents, then adds layers of bright floral and cherry notes with airing, while the palate is a whirl of mouthcoating flavors that never seem hamhanded despite the great intensity. Finishes with wonderfully plush tannins, making this approachable now, yet capable of evolving…  — J.C.  (3/1/2006)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $80
This superb single-vineyard bottling from the heart of Bussia was macerated on the skins for a whopping 90 days. It’s a breathtaking expression of Barolo, with intense Nebbiolo scents of rose, truffle and leather. The palate shows vibrant black cherry, truffle, spice, carob, pastry cream and balsamic herb notes and has remarkable depth and complexity. This is…  — K.O.  (9/1/2013)

Cavallotto 2007 Vignolo Riserva Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $98
This is a stunning and vibrant Barolo that defies the heat of the vintage thanks to 47-year-old vines, amazing terroir and noninvasive winemaking. It shows floral aromas of violet layered with spice and truffle, while the palate delivers rich wild cherry, mint and cinnamon. This already shows excellent complexity, but it’s still young. Drink after 2022.  — K.O.  (9/1/2013)

Gaja 2007 Nebbiolo (Barbaresco)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $210
This is the wine that made Angelo Gaja a household name worldwide. Made according to Barbaresco tradition, the wine reveals itself slowly at first and doles out small aromas of wild berry, licorice, root beer, smoke and graphite that become magically more intense with time in the glass. The acidity, tannic factor and overall sophistication show harmony and…  — M.L.  (5/1/2011)

Gaja 2006 Conteisa Nebbiolo (Langhe)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $215
Conteisa is a Barolo-inspired wine from Angelo Gaja (with 8% Barbera) that opens with very attractive and approachable aromas of red fruit, tobacco, leather, moist earth and black licorice. There’s a youthful element to the personality (that hints at a long aging future ahead) backed by silky, but firm tannins and beautifully crisp acidity. The wine will be at its…  — M.L.  (5/1/2011)
