The Gaja Sori Tildin 2010 displays deep purple color in the glass accompanied by complex aromas of toast, minerals, sour cherries, cedar and spices. 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.
"Wow. Impressive and complex aromas of lilacs, dried strawberries and hints of flower stems. Full body with focused and polished tannins. It draws you to the center palate of the wine and seems to last forever. "
"Gaia Gaja uses the word “salty” to describe this next wine, and I see her point. The 2010 Sori Tildin shows a dry, firmly structured quality that enhances those extraordinary, breezy overtones of lead pencil and brimstone that so fittingly frame the Nebbiolo grape. The lingering end-notes of rose petal, ginger and cedar are striking. You immediately feel the tannic structure and power of the wine. The jump is very sharp next to the Costa Russi, and that’s why this is one of Gaja’s best cellar-agers."
The Wine Advocate
"Good full medium red. Subtly complex aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, graphite, mocha and spices. Seriously deep and fine-grained, with dazzling mid-palate minerality energizing the wine's fruit and drawing out the finish. Outstanding balance and vinosity here. The very long finish leaves behind a sexy smoky quality. "
International Wine Cellar
"Displaying plenty of cherry, raspberry and floral notes, this is well-structured and balanced, with hints of sweet spices gracing the finish. Very expressive now, showing the potential to age. Juicy and long."
"Dark berries, rose petals plums, spices, mocha and licorice emerge from the 2010 Sorì Tildìn. The 2010 is a big, rich wine with surprising mid-palate density and power, perhaps just a bit less nuance than in most years. Layers of fruit build to a huge, enveloping finish supported by broad brush strokes of tannin.
