Gaja’s 2004 Sori Tildin floats on the palate. It is the most nuanced of these single-vineyard offerings, with gorgeous notes of tar, smoke, roses, violets, sweet toasted oak and earthiness that emerge from the glass in a counterpoint of sublime elegance and stunning purity. It possesses superb length and elegant, silky tannins to round out the finish. This extraordinary Sori Tildin will require at least a few years of bottle age, but it is destined to be one of the vintage’s legendary wines.

One of the biggest surprises in this tasting, the 2004 Sorì Tildìn comes across as imposing and massively structured, with shades of pure power that are more typical of Sorì San Lorenzo than they are of Sorì Tildìn. Veins of floral, savory and mineral-infused notes run through a core of dark fruit. The 2004 is vivid, nuanced but also very young. With some decanting it is approachable today, but, frankly, I would prefer to wait another few years. This is a fabulous Sorì Tildìn.
