  • Antonio Galloni, October 2020, Score: 94

    The 2017 Barbaresco Costa Russi is gorgeous. Dark, layered and wonderfully inviting, the Costa Russi expresses the restrained style of the vintage and yet has terrific depth. Black cherry, plum, mocha, spice, leather and star anise build as this sumptuous, classically mid-weight Barbaresco shows of all of its pedigree. The 2017 is a lighter Costa Russi, there is no doubt about that, but this is also the most complete of the three single vineyard Barbarescos.

  • Wine Advocate, October 2020, Score: 95

    In terms of production numbers, this is one of the smallest vintages we've seen from the Costa Russi vineyard. Thanks to replanting efforts, about half of the old vines were ripped out in 2017 (compared to the 2016 vintage that made 10,000 bottles with the whole vineyard in production). The Gaja 2017 Barbaresco Costa Russi offers a warmer and softer character compared to Sorì San Lorenzo and Sorì Tildìn. Overall, the wine is richer and more textured. I definitely taste the vintage heat with its slightly sweeter and more accessible tones of cherry, cassis and fragrant blue flower. Costa Russi is usually defined by lifted notes of aniseed and sambuco, and you get those here too, although they are a less pronounced in this vintage. This is a balanced and carefully assembled Barbaresco with a lean approach backed by fine tannins and bright acidity.

  • James Suckling, October 2020, Score: 96

    A pretty red with ripe-cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and very tight with a creamy, polished palate that goes on for minutes. Very fine and polished tannins. Give this two or three years to come more together. Better after 2022.

Founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859, the Gaja Winery has since been owned and operated by five generations of the Gaja family. In 1994, Gaja acquired its first wine estate in Tuscany, Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino. Two years later, they acquired a second property, Ca'Marcanda, located in Castagneto Carducci within the prestigious Bolgheri appellation. Currently, the Gaja Winery owns 250 acres of vineyards in Piedmont, located in the Barbaresco district (Barbaresco and Treiso) and the Barolo district (Serralunga d'Alba and La Morra). Today, Gaja’s reputation as one of Italy’s finest wine producers can be attributed to great-grandson, Angelo Gaja, whose innovation and dedication has helped to define Italian wine over the last 30 years. Through daring viticultural and winemaking decisions, Angelo has helped to inspire the next generation, most notably daughters Gaia and Rossana, as well as son Giovanni. This fifth-generation dynasty continue to move Gaja forward, producing wines of rare purity and undeniable quality.Read less

Region

Piedmont

Piedmont is located in the north western corner of Italy. Though several grape varieties are prominent such as Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato, it is Nebbiolo that reigns supreme. It produces wines that are not particularly deep in colour, yet they are perfumed, powerful and can age for many years. Due to the ethereal nature of the Nebbiolo grape and the numerous single vineyard wines, many compare top examples to grand cru Burgundies of the Côte de Nuits.Mountainous, its vineyards are cut into the hillsides forming terraces reminiscent of the Mosel Valley in Germany and the northern Rhone Valley in France. The two most notable appellations are Barolo and Barbaresco.
