Suckling über: Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo

-- Suckling: Majestic aromas of crushed berry, meat, orange peel. Full body, very tannic yet ripe tannins and exquisite fruit. Amazing depth and density. They said they macerated a little more than normal because the fruit was perfect. A classic nebbiolo that reminds me of the great 1996. Really cool. About 30% less production. Don’t touch for five to 10 years. A celebratory wine for Gaja’s return to the Barbaresco appellation. 100/100


Galloni über: Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo

-- Galloni: Gaja's Sorì San Lorenzo, arguably the most iconic of all the wines, is superb. The 2013 is dark, virile and imposing, with a more classically leaning expression of power than in the recent past, not to mention tons of raw intensity. A host of graphite, savory herb, menthol, licorice, lavender, smoke and dark-fleshed fruits meld into the huge, tannic finish. There is a touch of French oak, but the personality of this site marries very naturally with the cooperage. 98/100


Falstaff über: Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo

-- Falstaff: Leuchtendes, kräftiges Rubin. Sehr einladende und intensive Nase, satt nach reifen Waldhimbeeren, frische Zwetschken und Kirschen, im Hintergrund feine Safran-Noten. Stahlt am Gaumen, öffnet sich mit perfekt eingebundenem, feinmaschischen Tannnin, saftig, geht dann schön in die Tiefe, ist füllig, hat aber auch Saftigkeit und Trinkfluss, sehr langer Nachhall. 98/100


Parker über: Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo

-- Parker: Congratulations to the Gaja family and their 2013 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo. This is a sheer and powerful expression of Nebbiolo that boasts a very firm and precise textural quality. The wine is 100% Nebbiolo, as blended Barbera is no longer part of the Sorì San Lorenzo DNA. The tannins are sharply delineated with a crunchy snap that you feel on the palate. This should definitely serve to keep the wine firmly rooted and committed to a slow aging trajectory. That structural firmness is the defining characteristic of this wine, and that unique identity is even more evident now that this wine is officially classified as Barbaresco. 97/100
