The 1999 Sorì San Lorenzo is a modern-day classic. Freshly cut flowers, mint, chalk, bright red cherries and anise jump from the glass in a pure, crystalline wine endowed with magnificent tension and precision. Pulsating in the glass, the 1999 is all about energy and weightless precision. In that sense, the 1999 is a younger version of the 1982.

Brooding aromas of currant minerals tobacco truffle and earth; strong aspect of medicinal austerity. Suave bright and young; offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and powerful structure. Very rich mouthfilling wine with even more power and thrust than the young 2000. Finishes with very fine sweet tannins and outstanding persistence. 95(+?) points

Deep, powerful, and structured, the 1999 Sori San Lorenzo is another great effort from Gaja. It displays a big brooding personality, defined by notes of tar, wet earth, cocoa and sweet dark fruit with notable expansiveness on the palate, although the wine remains quite backward. This shut down quickly in the glass and appears to be most youthful of these 1999s. Patience is clearly warranted. drink after 2011, 03/06 - Antonio Galloni
