Angelo Gaja makes the most exciting wines in Italy. He has few equals in terms of his sheer determination and dedication to great winemaking. Years ago, Gaja transcended traditional, rustic Italian winemaking by making modern wines that appealed to sophisticated consumers around the world. Yet he preserved his wines’ unique Italian character.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
1999 Langhe Sori San Lorenzo—Dark ruby. Deep, powerful, and structured, the 1999 Sori San Lorenzo is another great effort from Gaja. It displays a big brooding personality, defined by notes of tar, wet earth, cocoa and sweet dark fruit with notable expansiveness on the palate, although the wine remains quite backward. This shut down quickly in the glass and appears to be most youthful of these 1999s. Patience is clearly warranted.
