Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barbaresco Sori Tildin 2017


Lobenberg: Tildin war der Kosename von Angelo Gajas Großmutter. Seit 1970 wird er als Einzellagenwein abgefüllt, damals war das noch visionär, denn die meisten Weine im Piemont waren Blends verschiedener Weinberge. Von den Jahrgängen 1996 bis 2011 waren circa 5% Barbera im Cuvée und da für die Barbaresco DOCG 100 Prozent Nebbiolo vorgeschrieben sind wurde der Sori Tildin für diese Zeit unter der Langhe Nebbiolo DOC abgefüllt. Seit dem Jahrgang 2013 ist er wieder reiner Nebbiolo und unter Barbaresco DOCG. Für 12 Monate im Barrique und anschließend weitere 12 Monate im großen Holzfass ausgebaut. Ein komplexer und tiefer Wein mit ungeheurer Aromenvielfalt: wir finden Schokolade, Espresso, Tabak, Lakritz und opulente Fruchtmassen. hochkonzentriert, hedonistisch und tief mit langem, samtigem finale. 97-99/100


Suckling über: Barbaresco Sori Tildin

-- Suckling: Extremely perfumed with strawberries, flowers, cherries and hints of ash and tar. Medium to full-bodied with tightness and raciness to the tannins. Polished, too. Very, very persistent. Try after 2022. 98/100


Decanter über: Barbaresco Sori Tildin

-- Decanter: Sori Tildin is a lofty south-facing site located above another of Gaja's three single vineyards, Costa Russi. It shows delightful purity of fruit and fragrance on the nose, with lifted and fresh raspberry aromas. Although suave and velvety on the palate, there are robust and assertive tannins beneath the fruit. This has tension and gravitas, more so than Costa Russi in this vintage. Very long. 95/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Barbaresco Sori Tildin

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Light ruby hued, the 2017 Barbaresco Sori Tildin is a nuanced, elegant Barbaresco offering lots of beautiful red and subtle blue fruits intermixed with notes of wildflowers, licorice, asphalt, tobacco, and dried spices. Aromatic, incredibly perfumed, and already complex, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a lengthy, seamless finish that carries plenty of salinity and freshness. It's not a blockbuster, but it excels on its purity, freshness, and elegance, and it certainly has enough tannins for a long life. It didn't show at its best until day two, so if you're opening bottles any time soon, a healthy decant is recommended. It will ideally be given 5-7 years of bottle age to hit its early drink window and should evolve for 20+. 95/100


Parker über: Barbaresco Sori Tildin

-- Parker: The Gaja 2017 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn opens to a luminous ruby appearance with pretty crimson highlights. This vintage appears lighter in color and concentration compared to past editions. The bouquet delivers a purity and sharpness nonetheless, but it offers less overall fruit. It shows subtle berry tones with blue flower, aniseed and candied orange peel. This very young Sorì Tildìn takes time to open, and it remains on the nervous side even after it has been given ample time in the glass. The best course of action is to wait until the 10-year mark before opening this bottle. It needs that extra time to soften and flesh out. 94/100
