Here the personality of the year is perfectly matched to that of the site. A host of smoke, tar, graphite, incense, licorice and melted road tar are fused together. Powerful and explosive, with enough freshness to drink well for several decades, the 2005 is absolutely magnificent today. Gaja's Sorì San Lorenzo is a wine of real personality and pedigree.

Gaja's 2005 Sori San Lorenzo is a dense dark beauty of sensual irresistible charm. This richly-textured expansive wine flows with masses of ripe dark fruit menthol licorice and mineral in a sumptuous full-bodied style. The use of oak is simply masterful here and the wine boasts extraordinary balance. I am not sure how he does it but Angelo Gaja is easily Italy's most consistently brilliant producer. For those who can afford it this is another gem from Gaja. Readers should interpret my drinking windows with a large grain of salt. The 1990 Sor? San Lorenzo is still young and the 1978 is amazingly fresh so it is anyone's guess as to when this wine might be actually "ready." In the meantime this wine is sure to provide enormous pleasure to those lucky enough to own it. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.

Very pretty plum and strawberry aromas follow through to a full body with ultrafine tannins and a long finish. A reserved almost delicate style. But with air this gives you loads of luscious and beautiful fruit. Best... Very pretty plum and strawberry aromas follow through to a full body with ultrafine tannins and a long finish. A reserved almost delicate style. But with air this gives you loads of luscious and beautiful fruit. Best after 2011. 800 cases made. -JS
