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.

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.

  • 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.

Gaja 2009 Sorì San Lorenzo Nebbiolo (Langhe)

There’s always something magical about Gaja’s Sorì San Lorenzo. It’s the intensity and fullness of the wine that penetrates to the back of the palate and offers many long minutes of persistency on the finish. The bouquet is redolent of black fruit, leather, spice, tar, licorice and dried herb.
