Gaja Costa Russi Barbera Nebbiolo Piedmont Langhe 2003
External Reviews for Gaja Costa Russi Barbera Nebbiolo Piedmont Langhe
A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2003 Gaja, Angelo Costa Russi 750ml
Wine Spectator ReviewPlenty of fresh blackberry and cherry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a chewy finish. Well-structured for the vintage. Very fresh and lively. Best after 2008.
The 2003 Costa Russi is a noticeably bigger and more powerful wine than the Barbaresco. Although it is less expressive in its aromatics, it shows greater palate presence, with suggestions of super-ripe black cherries, tobacco and earthiness on a full-bodied frame with notable depth and a concentrated yet open-knit personality. It offers excellent balance, yet the hard tannins of the vintage are most penalizing in the Costa Russi and this wine comes across as somewhat heavy and ponderous in style, lacking the characteristic elegance of Gaja s best wines. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020.
