Sori Barbesco
Red wine

Gaja, Sorì Tildìn, Barbaresco 2016

RRP £395

Another sensational wine, this is a noticeably modern rendering, showing the hand of a very good winemaker. The nose is quite closed, with dark cherries, blackberry jam, vanilla, molasses, cedarwood and herbs. Tight, powerful, concentrated palate – full-bodied, with big, ripe tannins, great balance and racy acidity. Very long finish and impressive complexity; shows great potential.
