This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1988 Gaja Sorì Tildìn

Dinner at Brown.

1988 Gaja Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn - needs at least 45 minutes to 1 hour breathing time.  Too acidic before that.  After opening up, the nose was very sweet, full of cassis and raisin.  A bit of smoked meats, very slight peppery finish.  Wow!  Nose was very powerful.  Tannins velvety, not too heavy.  After 2½ hours it became acidic again.  Very good bottle of wine.

Bought from Fine and Rare Wines for GBP 111.
