Deep purple. Charming aromas of sandalwood, laurel, wild herbs, rosewater, lavender and chamomile show themselves upon first approaching this wine. Once deeper into the glass, you'll begin to notice a complex myriad of things - first cedar, then sweet fruits such as white melon and pear, followed closely by coriander, sage and earthy aromatic herbs. All of these aromatics wash over your palate upon entry, the tannins are well-structured and the acidity is laser perfect. Not as powerfully tannic as Costa Russi, it mainly benefits from a wider spectrum of aroma's and flavors, plus wonderful freshness and opulence all the way through a very long finish.

Here's a wonderfully spicy and opulent rendition of Nebbiolo and another very full and rich Barbaresco from Gaja. The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is open, more concentrated and structured. There are pretty floral notes of rose hip or wild rose in this generous wine of broad scope. We're talking about smaller fruit here, with plums, cassis, blackberry and plenty of power. Everything came to perfect maturity in this 2016 vintage, representing that rare merge of quantity and quality. This is what you get from the dense soils of the warm, south-facing Sorì Tildìn site and similar ones where the terrain can keep the moisture locked in. The 2016 growing season was also marked by sharp diurnal shifts, and rainfall was well-timed to occur when it was needed most.

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.
