Terrific aromas of ripe fruit, spices, licorice and blackberries. Full-bodied, with lots of ripe fruit and a lovely balance of round tannins and hints of oak. Very concentrated. Best after 2006.

Here's a wine that transcends cultures, regions and varietals. La Tâche in Piedmont? Rutherford Cabernet? Balanced, with the sort of ripe, clean, pure fruit that most wine lovers (and winemakers) would kill for. Focused, opulent and elegant, packed with lightly toasted, slightly petrollike aromas and loads of cassis and blackberry flavors. Very firm, so cellar. Best from 2003 through 2026.

Fabulous aromas of rose petals and cherries with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and an incredible finish. This is so fine and so long. A real beauty that grows and grows on the palate. Great Nebbiolo. Greatest Costa Russi ever, from 34-year-old vines. Best after 2010.

The 2000 Costa Russi, for me, is no better than the Barbaresco, despite its intense nose and the larger impact of the oak. Intense and sustained, its fruit is a bit less fresh than the 2001 (or the 1999 version of this same wine) and the important concentration of the finish could use a bit more flesh and sweetness. Drink: 2006-2016. Wines like this, made by Piedmont's most famous producer, can only arouse some serious doubts about the future of Cabernet in the region.

The dark ruby/purple-colored, supple-texture 1998 Costa Russi possesses sweet, jammy raspberry and cherry fruit, medium to full body, gorgeous glycerin, low acidity, and a lightly tannic finish. Although large-sized, it has good finesse as well as beautifully pure fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.

1995 tends to be a good rather than great vintage in Piedmont, but Gaja's sensational 1995s are among the stars of the vintage. This wine possesses extremely saturated dark ruby/purple colors, almost atypical for Nebbiolo. The 1995 Barbaresco Costa Russi is a full-bodied, fruit-driven, and powerful wine, it possesses copious quantities of black raspberry and cherry fruit, as well as toasty new oak. There is even an element of sur-maturite in this large-scaled, expansively flavored effort. I would not be surprised to see it age for 20–25 years. Anticipated maturity: 2004–2020+.
