Barbaresco Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo 1968/ #11753160
Fantastic example of Barbaresco Gaja Sori San Lorenzo from 1968
The term Sorì indicates the portion of the hillside facing south, while Lorenzo is the patron saint of the Cathedral of the city of Alba, whose parish benefice was the owner until 1964 of the vineyard subsequently purchased by the Gaja family. It is almost always the most powerful and perhaps the most majestic of the five single vineyards of Gaja, the one that later reaches full maturation in the bottle.

GRAPES: Nebbiolo 95% - Barbera 5%

Produced from 95% Nebbiolo and 5% Barbera grapes from Sorì San Lorenzo, located in the territories of the Barbaresco DOCG denomination, more precisely in the Municipality of Barbaresco; by choice of Angelo Gaja it was decided to leave the DOCG. In the vineyard, the yield per hectare is around 40 quintals. In the cellar, the fermentation on the skins lasts 3-4 weeks and takes place in steel tanks, at a temperature of 24-28°C. The aging in wood takes place in barriques for the first 12 months and in large barrels for the remaining 12; before being put on the market, the wine rests in glass for a few months.
