External Reviews for Angelo Gaja Chardonnay Rossj Bass
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.
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.
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.
International in style to the extent that itrsquo;s amazingly dense and filled with silky, ripe, fat tannins that just balloon on the palate, but itrsquo;s clearly Piedmontese in all that mineral, blood orange, lead-pencil and intriguing red- and blackberry character. Refined and elegant despite its full-bodied, rich personality. Slightly smoky, toasted complexity on the blackberry-packed finish. Drink now through 2015.
The 2000 Sori San Lorenzo is, as always, the most complete of the three, more complex in aroma with the notes of anise, herbs, and spices more completely integrated with the fruit, the fullness and dimension of the flavors more perceptible, the finish longer and more authoritative. Drink: 2005ndash;2020.
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.
More complex, aromatic nose of cassis, flowers, woodsmoke, game and grilled nuts. Silky and suave in the mouth, with sound acidity, but not as dense or as forthcoming today as the ’96. But here the tannins are smooth and ripe, and the strong black cherry fruit sweet and persistent.
