Winemaker Notes

The nine-acre Sorì San Lorenzo vineyard was acquired by the Gaja family in 1964 and today produces one of Gaja's single-vineyard Langhe Nebbiolo D.O.C. wines. The word Sorì means a hilltop with a southern exposure; San Lorenzo is the patron saint of Alba. It is extremely concentrated, with intense notes of black currants and black cherries and hints of black berries, mineral notes and aromas of herbs and exotic spices. A colossal, rich wine with a complex structure and great concentration and power.

Gaja
The story of the Gaja Winery can be traced to a singular, founding purpose: to produce original wines with a sense of place which reflect the tradition and culture of those who made it. This philosophy has inspired five generations of impeccable winemaking. It started over 150 years ago when Giovanni Gaja opened a small restaurant in Barbaresco, making wine to complement the food he served. In 1859, he founded the Gaja Winery, producing some of the first wine from Piedmont to be bottled and sold outside the region. Ever since, the winery has been shaped by each generation’s hand, notably that of Angelo Gaja. Under Angelo's direction, the the native Nebbiolo grape was elevated to world-class esteem.

Today, Angelo Gaja, alongside Guido Rivella, his winemaker since 1970, and his daughter, Gaia, advance their legacy. To fully realize their vision, all Gaja wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown in estate-owned vineyards, including 250 acres in Piedmont's Barbaresco and Barolo districts as well as estates in Pieve Santa Restituta (Montalcino) and Ca’Marcanda (Bolgheri). It is from these storied vineyards, and the earth, weather and vines upon them, that Gaja wines reveal their true heart.
