2014 Sorì San Lorenzo from Gaja, Piedmont, Italy

Nestled in the heart of Italy with a prestigious label that echoes the harmonious balance between man and nature stands the 2014 Sorì San Lorenzo from Gaja. The 2014 vintage is a testament to Angelo Gaja’s relentless commitment to precision, finesse, and betrayal of the vagabond nature of seasons.


The Harmonious Fruit of Adversity

The hailstorm cloaked Piedmont region in 2014 was certainly a crucible for viticulturists, but none so as for Gaja. In reacting to challenge with perfect aplomb, the end result was a delineation of vibrant fruit purity and an innate freshness that makes the 2014 Sorì San Lorenzo stand apart from its earlier iterations.

Ravished by berries, plums and peppered spice on the nose, the palate offers an effusion of darker summer fruits enveloped on layers of velvety tannins. But it's the wine’s underlying frisson of mineral edge that gives this vintage its electric persona.


Veritable Icon of Investment Wines

A compelling foil to volatility, wines from Italy like this offer an investable steadiness that complements any diversified fine wine portfolio. The 2014 Sorì San Lorenzo from Gaja is an exemplar - exhibiting remarkable consistency even when Mother Nature plays her unpredictable hand.

Gaja's fierce dedication has made astoundingly idyllic wines wrought from the harshest circumstances. And while fine wines typically grow in value over time, those from illustrious producers like Gaja representing challenging vintages can offer more desirable returns for savvy investors.


2014 - A Vintage Not Just Produced, But Crafted

The 2014 Sorì San Lorenzo holds the essence of perseverance, with Gaja’s formidable skill carving exquisite flavour profiles from an onslaught of climate conditions. A clutching minerality accompanies ripe dark fruits while a medley of fresh earth, vanilla, and sweet licorice seamlessly fold into the finish.

What encapsulates this fine wine is its profound balance - an ode to the beauty that can emerge from the cauldron of adversity. And it is for these very reasons that savvy investors are drawn to such irresistible liquid assets like the 2014 Sorì San Lorenzo from Gaja.

Gaja's 2014 Barbaresco Sorì 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.
