2007 Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Sperss  (Langhe DOC) 97

Served blind, I thought it was great from start to finish with its fat, lush, opulent nature and the ripe, black cherry, fudge, boysenberry, trufle and smoke filled personality. Delicious in every way. 97 Points

2007 Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Sorì Tildìn  (Langhe DOC) 96

I am probably shortchanging this sublime wine at 96 Pts. There is a wealth of rich, sweet, fleshy, ripe fruit, soft, silky tannins and an intriguing floral, mint, plum and blackberry filled nose that creates a great tasting experience. Served blind, this was a treat. 96 Points

2007 Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Sorì San Lorenzo  (Langhe DOC) 98

I do not taste a lot of Italian wines. But this is clearly one of the best Italian wines I've ever tasted! This has the right amount of everything. The complex nose, with its stone, tobacco, cassis, blackberry, earth and spicy character is stunning. On the palate, the wine coats your taste buds with its richly textured, layers of fat, juicy, intense, ripe and flavor packed berries. Served blind, I was knocked out. 98 Points

1997 Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Sorì Tildìn  (Langhe DOC) 93

Spicy cherries, herbs, earth, truffle and and licorice. Round in texture and still tannic, this medium/full bodied wine ends with fresh strawberry, herb and tart cherry flavors. 93 Points

1993 Gaja Sperss  (Barolo) 85

Lean, tart, dry red cherries was the best this wine had to offer. This wine lacks charm. 85 Points

1993 Gaja Sorì Tildìn  (Barbaresco) 87

Not much fun to drink, unless you enjoy acidic, under-ripe, tart red fruits and dry textures. Where was the pleasure? It was much better on the nose than the palate. That being said, I was happy when the next flight was poured. 87 Points

1989 Gaja Sorì Tildìn  (Barbaresco) 90

Bright red fruit, acidity, tannin, spice and structure. With air, the wine attempted to soften, but the levels of tannin and mouth drying acidity did not make this a fun wine to drink. This is another wine where I could sense a level of quality from the fruit and structure, but the lack of pleasure did not appeal to me. Others in the group liked it a lot more than I did. 90 Points

1982 Gaja Sorì Tildìn  (Barbaresco) 89

With a perfume dominated by red fruit, spice and truffle, this medium bodied wine was tannic, tart and drying. Others in the group liked it a lot more than I did. I did not like the style of the wine. It lacked fruit and generosity. 89 Points

1961 Gaja  (Barbaresco) 89

It was quite nice with its spicy cherry, fennel, earth, strawberry, tobacco and truffle filled personality. Better on the nose than the palate, which was marred by the rustic tannins. 89 Points
