TASTING NOTES: Wine Spectator 95 points
Earthy notes lead off, followed by cherry, plum, graphite and tobacco flavors. Starts out broad and muscular, with a thick layer of tannins for support, yet gains elegance with aeration. A tad austere on the finish, but stays vibrant and long. Best from 2021 through 2036. 170 cases imported. BS.November/2017

Wine Enthusiast 94 points Forest floor, Porcini mushroom, eucalyptus, dark spice and toasted aromas curl out of the glass. It's youthfully austere, offering cranberry, sour cherry and licorice framed in assertive, close grained tannins. It still needs time to come around and fully bloom. Drink 2024 2034..March/2018

Vinous 97 points The 2014 Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo is the most virile and explosive of Gaja's Barbarescos. Dark, brooding and powerful, with a huge spine of tannin, the San Lorenzo is utterly regal in the glass. Gravel, smoke, menthol, tar, licorice and a host of sepia toned fruits build into a crescendo of aromas and flavors that is truly compelling. What a gorgeous wine this is..Antonio Galloni, October/2017

Wine Advocate 95 points
Gaja's 2014 Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo is clearly at the beginning of a long and promising aging trajectory. At it's core, it shows a pinch of nervous energy and inner tightness that will surely unravel and soften as this beautiful wine continues along its magical journey in time. Angelo Gaja and his family present spectacular results in this controversial 2014 vintage. They have risen far above most of their peers and have shown a keen ability to understand their site and the versatility of their cherished Nebbiolo grape. The variety sings with a loud and exuberant voice, first offering plenty of primary fruit like blackberry and dried cherry. It then follows up with savory earth and spice. This is a bright and youthful wine that is set steady for a long aging future..December/2017
