Description Sub Region
 
Though situated right alongside Sorì Tildìn in Roncagliette, Costa Russi, the third cru Barbaresco to take its place in the portfolio in 1978, inspires terms like accessible, overt, and generous. 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. Delicate, elegant, refined and pure, Costa Russi’s notes of violets and blackberries gain support from notes of licorice, smoke, and a strong streak of minerality. Great structure, awe-inspiring balance and an attenuated finish mark this exceptional wine that could only come from Angelo Gaja.
