San Lorenzo

Gaja, Sorì San Lorenzo, Barbaresco 2016

RRP £460

Bright, medium cherry colour with orange rim. There’s a touch of reduction on the vanilla, cedarwood, cherry, leather and nail-varnish nose, while the palate is tight and medium-bodied, with a juicy texture, grippy ripe tannins and great freshness. Elegant but slightly heavy on the oak; it pales in comparison to the generic Barbaresco
of the same year.
