95 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Barbaresco Costa Russi is a celebration of vineyard site. In the past, this wine was blended with 5% Barbera, but this is no longer the case starting now.

Costa Russi is known for delicate, light-bodied wines that exhibit floral aromas of rose hip and lavender, as well as darker fruit tones at the back. Those qualities are beautifully evident in this vintage. The mouthfeel is characterised by a firm sense of tannic structure that is common to all of Gaja's new releases in the 2013 vintage." - Monica Lancer
