Gaja Barbaresco Costa Russi 2001
External Reviews for Gaja Barbaresco Costa Russi
A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Gaja, Angelo Costa Russi 750ml
Winemaker's Notes: Whereas Sperss is usually more massive and tannic, the Nebbiolo in Conteisa reflects the essence of the Cerequio terroir: expressive, floral nose with notes of red berries, plums, licorice and spices; sumptuous texture and a very refined character with perfectly integrated tannins.
94 - Wine Advocate"The 2001 Costa Russi is a masculine wine, showing a rich color along with a dark nose of cherries in liqueur, tar and minerals. It is round and soft on the palate, offering generous amounts of dark fruit and toasted oak flavors with much persistence. Costa Russi is typically the most accessible of the single-vineyard wines, and the 2001 is true to type. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021." -Wine Advocate # 167, Oct 2006, Antonio Galloni
A silky, beautiful wine, with plum and berry character. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a caressing texture. Seductive, with layers of fruit and tannins. Best after 2009. 890 cases made. JS Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Gaja, Angelo Costa Russi 750ml
