Gaja Sori Tildin 2007, 750ml (JS97, WA97, WS95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Gaja Sori Tildin

750ml

Vintage: 2007
Region: Italy
Appellation: Barolo

JS97, WA97, WS95
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Langhe Sori Tildin opens with a huge, kaleidoscopic bouquet that immediately draws me in. A remarkably vivid wine, the sensual Sori Tildin caresses the palate with silky, textured fruit, showing incredible power, length and class. There is a transparency to the wine that is beguiling. Once again, the finish is eternal. Sori Tildin is one of Gaja`s more nuanced wines, and in 2007 it is breathtakingly beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2037.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `My most recent visit to Gaja was quite an experience, as I tasted all of the estate`s 1989s, 1990s and 2007s. The 1989s and 1990s are reviewed in this issue`s What About Now feature. Angelo Gaja, always loquacious on a wide range of subjects, says virtually nothing about his wines, an approach I have increasingly come to appreciate in an era where so many producers are constantly in pitch mode. Then again, Gaja doesn`t really need to say anything, the wines speak for themselves. I tasted the 2007s at the winery in November 2009 and then again in New York in January 2010. Both times they were spectacular. Stylistically the 2007s remind me of the 1997s in terms of their opulence. Gaja`s wines are often immensely appealing when young - which is certainly the case with the 2007s - but then close down in bottle for a number of years, sometimes many years. My impression is that the Costa Russi and Conteisa are the most likely of these 2007s to offer the widest drinking windows throughout their lives with a minimum of cellaring. Fermentation and malolactic fermentation take place in steel. The wines then spend approximately one year in French oak and a second year in cask prior to being bottled. As has been the case for a number of years now, Gaja`s Langhe wines incorporate a small percentage of Barbera. On a final note, it`s great to see Gaja`s daughters Gaia and Rossana increasingly involved in the winery. They, and their younger brother Giovanni, have big shoes to fill, but couldn`t have asked for better teachers than Angelo and Lucia Gaja.`
