Winemaker Notes

Deep purple color. Shows fresh and balsamic first notes, with aromas of lavender, basil, freshly-cut grass. Then it turns into a spicy and smoky character, with white pepper, clove and cinnamon. The palate is compact and clean, with notes of red apple, wild strawberry, blood orange, and licorice. Firm, fine-grained tannins keep this wine tightly wound, leading to the great aging potential.

99 Points - Wine Spectator

Aromas of asphalt and tar that turn to dried strawberries, plums and citrus fruit. Full body, yet agile and very refined with a beautiful balance of fruit, tannins and acidity. Extremely persistent and focused finish. All about harmony and strength.

97 Points - Decanter

Gaja's wines seem to be more precise in fruit and less extracted today than in previous decades. The tremendously youthful pomegranate and wild strawberry character discloses the ageing potential of this Sorì Tildin, supported by a full body and firm, tight-knit tannins, and underlined by still-firm acid. The finish shows the sweet character of straw and mild tobacco. This still needs time. Drinking Window 2020 - 2045.

96 Points - Wine Spectator

Almost seamless now, this red is hitting its stride, exuding cherry, strawberry, floral, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors. Offers great structure and length, with a firm, minerally aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2040.

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Wild berry, scorched earth, star anise, crushed herb and a whiff of toasted hazelnut pave the way on this poised full-bodied red. The structured palate boasts remarkable elegance, evoking juicy Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and graphite alongside fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it well balanced and imparts youthful tension. Drink 2022–2035.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is dense and compact with smoky layers of black fruit, crushed mineral and black truffle. This growing site always produces robust and opulent wines, but these characteristics are hammered home even more so in the hot 2015 vintage. The wine graciously offers enough acidity to achieve balance and remind you of its pedigree. Barbaresco usually opens and evolves faster than Barolo. I think you can count on this wine to reach the start of its drinking window within the next decade.
