Gaja Sori Tildin 2008, 1.5L (WA96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Gaja Sori Tildin

1.5L

Vintage: 2008
Region: Italy
Appellation: Barolo

WA96
Rated 96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2008 Sori Tildin is impressive. I confess I wasn`t quite prepared for the assault of fruit and tannins here. Sori Tildin is so often a graceful, elegant wine, but that is not the case in 2008. That`s not to say elegance is missing, but this is a big, big wine with tons of intensity and richness, all woven together beautifully. It`s tough to find a comparison with a previous vintage, as this is a singular Tildin. The flavors are familiar if a touch on the dark side, but the structure is closer than that of Sori San Lorenzo. Flowers, tar, leather and licorice wrap around the palate. This is a fabulous showing and a great wine in the making. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate:`This is a stunning set of wines from Angelo Gaja and his team in Barbaresco. Those who think 2008 is a truly great year for Nebbiolo must have tasted these wines. In a vintage that is inconsistent across the villages of Barbaresco, Gaja has produced not one but four stellar wines. As fabulous as these wines are, they aren`t especially true to type, as I explain in these notes. The 2008s I tasted in the US showed far better than the bottles I tasted in Barbaresco during the summer. Perhaps the onset of the cool fall weather gave these wines a little more spine than they had during the sweltering heat of August. Readers who want to learn more about the 2011 harvest at Gaja may want to take a look at my video interview with Gaia Gaja and vineyard manager Giorgio Culasso.`
