About

Ratings:

99

Such wonderful clarity and perfume to this with strawberry and candied citrus, yet it’s always so subtle and vivid. Full-bodied and very powerful with lots of well integrated tannins. Makes you stand to attention and notice it. Give this six or seven years of bottle age. Try after 2030.

97 Wine Enthusiast

First produced in 1970, the 50th vintage of Sori Tildin shows the grace and magic of this vineyard alongside the dedication of the Gaja family to sheer excellence. Savory aromas and dark-skinned fruits define the nose of the wine with hints of warmed spices, dried orange peel and iron as the wine develops in the glass. A wine that is exact and focused with vibrant plum flavors at the center with notes of forest floor, anise and dried rose. Fine elegant tannins provide a foundation that will carry this wine well into the future. Drink 2026–2050.

97 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2020 Barbaresco Sorì Tildin is a powerful, deep wine. Dark fruit, leather, spice, tobacco and incense saturate the palate. A Barbaresco of stature and brooding intensity, Sorì Tildin will need a number of years to be at its very best. The 2020 is an unusually somber, dark Sorì Tildin.

96+ Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Gaja 2020 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn appears more mineral-driven and timid on first nose. It shows bright, underripe fruit, which is great for it future evolution; however, the mouthfeel proves immediately expressive and generous. There is plenty of fruit to push it forward in time with more bottle age. The whole package is very elegant and fine.

96 Wine Spectator

This rich Barbaresco shows graceful power, with a fleshy texture embracing its cherry, strawberry, mint, iron, tobacco and spice aromas and flavors. The dense matrix of refined tannins is beautifully integrated, while vibrant acidity drives the persistent, savory finish. Best from 2026 through 2047. 200 cases imported.
