Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Perhaps the most influential individual in Italian wines over the last 30 years has been Angelo Gaja. Strikingly profound and often fit to live for decades, Gaja's wines display opulence and elegance. When collectors consider Italian wines for their cellar, Gaja is one of the first names they purchase. His wines (along with those of his father and grandfather) have a long-established track record, insuring the wines will perform well when opened, as well as on the auction block. Costa Russi, which was the third cru Barbaresco to take its place in the portfolio (1978), inspires a new lexicon, headlined by terms such as accessible, overt, and generous. Elegance and crystal purity characterize this complex and densely woven wine, which possesses an aging potential of decades. From the 1996 vintage on, Costa Russi has been classified as Langhe DOC, and not listed as Barbaresco DOCG due to the addition of Barbera.
