Angelo Gaja makes the most exciting wines in Italy. He has few equals in terms of his sheer determination and dedication to great winemaking. Years ago, Gaja transcended traditional, rustic Italian winemaking by making modern wines that appealed to sophisticated consumers around the world. Yet he preserved his wines’ unique Italian character.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2004 Costa Russi is irresistibly sexy and opulent. As is typically the case, the wine is more overtly fruit-driven, with a round, supple personality. Sweet, long and richly-textured, it is just plain awesome in its display of generous, vibrant fruit, tar, smoke, minerals and herbs. It is the finest Costa Russi yet.

97 Points Antonio Galloni
The 2004 Costa Russi is deep, dense and wonderfully layered throughout. Usually the most accessible of Gaja’s three single-vineyard wines from Barbaresco, the Costa Russi has more than enough tannin and overall structure to continue to drink well for another 15-20 years, perhaps longer. A sensual, open-knit wine, the 2004 Costa Russi is dazzling today.
