Winemaker's Notes

Color: Deep purple

Aroma: Complex aromas of toast, minerals, sour cherries, cedar and spice

Taste: Displays the roundest tasting profile of all Gaja single-vineyard wines. The rich body, subtle texture and fine, ripe tannins are typical for this wine of great finesse, the quintessential expression of the land and the Nebbiolo grape.

This wine has extraordinary aging potential - more than forty years in outstanding vintages.

Critical Acclaim

"Gaja's 2004 Sori Tildin floats on the palate. It is the most nuanced of these single-vineyard offerings, with gorgeous notes of tar, smoke, roses, violets, sweet toasted oak and earthiness that emerge from the glass in a counterpoint of sublime elegance and stunning purity. It possesses superb length and elegant, silky tannins to round out the finish. This extraordinary Sori Tildin will require at least a few years of bottle age, but it is destined to be one of the vintage's legendary wines. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."

"Incredibly perfumed, with chocolate, mineral and blackberry. Full-bodied, with amazing finesse, strength and balance. Long and beautiful. A return to the quality level of 2001. Best after 2011."
95 Points

"Good red-ruby. Superripe aromas of raspberry syrup and black plum, lifted by a whiff of juniper. Sweet, dense and deep, showing more oak today than the Costa Russi. Higher-pitched and less obviously complex today but this has a bit more stuffing for the long run. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a late hint of chocolate. This parcel is located at the windy top of the hill, and is slower to ripen than the Costa Russi, despite getting more sunshine. "

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
