Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The ’09 vintage offers a ripe, accessible, textured and opulent Costa Russi bottling. Juicy red and black fruit, mocha, sun-warmed earth, spice and toasted nuts comprise the nose of this bottling; the palate echoes the fruit and spice, adding elements of cherry cordial, warm saddle leather and cigar wrapper. Seductive and supple, this wine builds to a subtle yet satisfying finish. The 11-acre Costa Russi vineyard takes its name from the word “costa,” which is the side of a hill that faces the sun and “Russi,” the name of the vineyard’s former owners. Sitting on the lower portion of the prized hillside slope (just below the adjoining Sorì Tildìn), Costa Russi rests at a lower altitude and receives more direct sun, allowing Costa Russi to achieve more opulence and seductive qualities than the other two Gaja crus.
