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+.

Fantastic, world-class, silky-as-they-come red. Thick and dense, extracted but without heaviness, this elegant Barbaresco is packed to the brim with velvety tannins, red- and blackberry flavors and some tasteful, toasted, spicy notes. Palate-coating,... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1995 Gaja, Angelo Costa Russi 750ml
