Gaja’s wines reach their pinnacle in this quintessential expression of Nebbiolo with its fragrant aromas, magnificent depth and excellent definition. The 2014 is a beautiful wine with a complex bouquet of raspberries, wild strawberries and dried roses mingled with hints of exotic spices and sweet herbs. On the palate, there are layers of sweet red fruits with a core of smooth ripe black cherries and plums. All this is balanced by a lovely freshness and wonderfully integrated tannins with a refined mineral quality which leads to an incredibly long finish. Although approachable now, this is a wine with serious depths and great of ageing potential.
Reviews & Scores
Sweet rose petal, mint, chiseled red-toned fruit and chalk give the 2014 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn its sculpted, brilliant personality. All the elements are in the right place. A wine of translucent energy and weightless elegance, the Sorì Tildìn is hauntingly beautiful today. A host of floral notes and red berry fruit infuse the persistent, chiseled finish in this fabulous Barbaresco. As it so often is, the Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is a wine of pure charm and seduction.
97 Points, Antonio Galloni
The nose has it all here with fresh cranberry character, brambleberries and lavender intermingled with darker, more complex notes of cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Full body, so much vibrant acidity, tangy fruit, expansive yet tight tannins and a long, savory finish. Profound minerality. Delicious now but better in 2020.

Rich, juicy and chewy at once, this red evokes cherry, eucalyptus, tar and spice...
aromas and flavors. Taut yet intense, with energy that drives the long, savory finish. Best from 2023 through 2040.

This is a much more aromatically wealthy wine than its two peers above, with incense, spice and mint in addition to complex red fruits. The palate combines juiciness with elegance; there’s some floral complexity behind the fruit; while the finish reveals a glowing enchantment I didn’t expect from 2014.
