Tasting Notes

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.
96 Points, James Suckling


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.
94 Points, Wine Spectator

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. 
94 Points, Andrew Jefford, Decanter

TASTING NOTES

Compact, taut, powerful, the most reticent of the three. With a little time in the glass the perfume starts to hint at what this wine is capable of: red fruit, rose, rich spice and a sense of stones. This is deeply mineral with a real sense of purpose and line. There is such delicacy to the fruit and an outstanding...

TASTING NOTES

This has a darker fruit character than Conteisa. Very deep and layered and in need of time to unfurl. The texture and harmony of the wine are most striking at this stage. Gossamer but very present tannins which reinforce and support the dense core of fruit. This hangs together perfectly with a great sense of progression from the concentrated fruit...

2010 Sperss, Gaja Piedmont

TASTING NOTES

The 2011 really highlights the nuance, subtlety and elegance that this site is capable of whilst retaining the depth, verve and structure. This is a powerfully built Barbaresco but one with striking finesse. There is so much complexity but it is seamless and weightlessly elegant. One of the best Sorì Tildìns we have tasted. Supreme.

TASTING NOTES

Floral, extravagantly perfumed and sensual. This is a textured, sumptuously fruity Costa Russi with a backbone of acidity and minerality which frames and elevates the layered and complex fragrance and silky texture. Extremely evocative, engaging and enticing this really highlights the delicacy of Barbaresco yet still has the grunt, power and sophistication of a Gaja wine. Brilliant.
