Full-bodied with masses of fruit as well as toasty oak and milk chocolate. This is a wine that gives you lots at the finish. Best after 2014. 800 cases made. -JS

In most vintages, Sorì Tildìn is quite bit different stylistically than Costa Russi, but in 2005 the wines are more similar, as one might expect given that the two vineyards are on the same hill. In this vintage, the Sorì Tildìn is a bit more virile and brooding than it often is, with more power than finesse relative to the very best examples. And yet, there is something totally alluring about the 2005. Readers who own it might want to wait a few more years, but there is plenty to look forward to.

Floral aromatics meld seamlessly into freshly cut roses raspberries licorice tar and menthol. This graceful feminine wine reveals tons of elegance and finesse in an understated style. Today the Sori Tildin shows a touch more oak than the other single-vineyard wines which suggests it may not quite have the stuffing of the very finest vintages. Still this remains a vibrant and very Piedmontese wine in need of only one thing and that is a long slumber in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035. I was blown away by Angelo Gaja's 2005 wines from Barbaresco. When all is said and done Gaja may have well produced not the wine but rather the wines of the vintage in a year that was excellent but not profound. While Gaja's 2005 don't have the explosive multi-dimensional personalities of his 2004s they are vibrant offerings that will thrill readers who love Piedmont wines. As always Gaja blends in a small percentage of Barbera in his single-vineyard wines but that is hardly noticeable in this vintage. I also noted less new oak than has generally been the case in the recent past. The wines showcase very pure expressions of Nebbiolo and are made in a style that appears to make fewer concessions to the decidedly international approach of previous vintages. In short these are the most Piedmontese wines I have tasted from Angelo Gaja in a long time. Could it be that the greatest innovator in Piedmont over the last thirty five-plus years has taken a small step towards a more classic style? - Antonio Galloni
