Angelo Gaja is one of Italy`s most renowned and dynamic winemakers, producing world class wines that command world class prices. Since he took over the family business in 1970 he has focused on harnessing the power of the Nebbiolo grape in his pursuit of a richer more refined style of Barbaresco.

Angelo, who now controls 30 estates covering 100 hectares of Piedmont’s finest vineyard sites, has introduced impressive modern winemaking facilities and initiated single vineyard Barbarescos. His Sorì (lit.a south-facing hilltop) San Lorenzo is one of Gaja’s flagship wines of stunning elegance that is more than worthy of its weighty price.

“The 2009 Sori Tildin is a fascinating wine. The vineyard sits just above Costa Russi, separated only by the road that leads to Alba. This is an especially imposing vintage for Sori Tildin. Over time, the wine’s signature nuances and details begin to emerge. A radiant, sensual personality rounds things out nicely. This is a great showing from Gaja. The 2009 shuts down quickly in the glass, and is likely to demand a measure of patience from readers.”
