This is the more ephemeral, delicate and floral member of the extended Barbaresco family from Gaja.

"The 2017 Barbaresco Costa Russi is broad and ample on the palate, as it usually is, but with quite a bit of tannic underpinning that lends energy. Like all of the 2017s at Gaja, the Costa Russi is a bit light in both color and structure. I imagine it will need at least a few years in bottle to be truly expressive. Costa Russi is often a wine of sensuality, but the 2017 is a powerhouse of tannin and acid." 92-95 pts, Antonio Galloni , Vinous

"A pretty red with ripe-cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and very tight with a creamy, polished palate that goes on for minutes. Very fine and polished tannins. Give this two or three years to come more together. Better after 2022." 96 pts, James Suckling

"The Gaja 2017 Barbaresco Costa Russi offers a warmer and softer character compared to Sorì San Lorenzo and Sorì Tildìn. Overall, the wine is richer and more textured. I definitely taste the vintage heat with its slightly sweeter and more accessible tones of cherry, cassis and fragrant blue flower. Costa Russi is usually defined by lifted notes of aniseed and sambuco, and you get those here too, although they are a less pronounced in this vintage. This is a balanced and carefully assembled Barbaresco with a lean approach backed by fine tannins and bright acidity." 95 pts, Monica Larner, WA
