Sorì San Lorenzo is a Barbaresco that comes from the pure use of a great Piedmontese red grape variety, Nebbiolo. The grapes, carefully selected by the Gaja team during manual harvesting, undergo a double aging process after vinification, which is essential to fully develop the characteristics of this wine. In fact, it proceeds with a first period of 12 months spent in barriques, and then, with another year spent in large barrels. At the end of these 24 months of maturation, the wine is ready to be bottled and marketed.
Gaja's Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo red wine presents itself to the eye with a brilliant hue, reminiscent of garnet. The nose is almost indescribable in words, with a whirlwind of sensations from underbrush to ripe fruit and spices, also crossed by light nuances of herbs. On the palate it is full-bodied, warm and swaddling, with a perfectly balanced sip, marked by a pleasant freshness; it ends with a finish of incredible persistence. A label that makes us enter the elite of the great Italian reds, confirming the Gaja winery as one of the legends of the entire Italian oenology.
