Gaja Barbaresco Costa Russi
Supple, round and seductive,
- Piedmont, Italy
"The 2010 Costa Russi is a vineyard-designate “Barbaresco” (although the wine’s addition of five percent Barbera prohibits it from being called such) that opens to even more profound depth and generosity. As is typical of this cru expression, the wine displays an amazing assortment of aromas that span from the floral to the spicy. Supple, round and seductive, it caresses the palate in the most beautiful fashion. The 2010 vintage is shaping up handsomely for those who collect Gaja’s best bottles. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035. " 95/100, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate.
"Aromas of freshly sliced strawberries and wild flowers. Minty. Full body with wonderfully integrated tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Very drinkable already, but better in 2016." 95/100, James Suckling
