Aged 12 months in barriques; plus an additional year in large oak casks. Of all Gaja single-vineyard wines, Costa Russi often shows the most captivating and refined nose. Elegance and crystal purity characterize this extremely complex and densely woven wine with an aging potential of decades.
"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."
"Darker, richer and earthier than Gaja’s Barbaresco, picking up notes of coffee, vanilla and toast as well. Yet on the palate there’s wonderfully bright cherry-raspberry fruit and masses of lush, velvety tannins that will give this wine plenty of life in the cellar. Drink 2012–2030."
"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."
