We have saved a bottle of 1986 Gaja Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo since receiving it as a wedding gift.
The vintage only produced 10,600 bottles, 250 magnums and 50 double magnums. The bottle has a registration number on it.
Can anyone advise where I can find a review of this wine or let me know when to drink it.

Seventeen years should be enough for it to have melded nicely.

Would this bottle have any significant monetary value?

Drink it. Even if it has monetary value it will not make you rich, but the experience of a great Barbaresco (if it is a great one) certainly will make you happy.

Money begets fear;
Great wine begets love;
Love is the absence of fear;
Love is leaving fear behind.

The Barbaresco was wonderfull. Full bodied, mellow but hard to determine actual flavors.
Well worth the wait .
Thank you for your support.
