In Bond case of Barbaresco Costa Russi, Gaja 2015.
As with much of Europe 2015 is also a truly great vintage in Piedmont, with exciting and more inviting wines than in the more austere 2014s. According to Gaia Gaja, a warm July was critical imbuing the wines with a concentrated fruit expression, whilst maintaining the classic trend of a unique terroir identity from each of Gaja’s vineyards.
“The 2015 Costa Russi nose is generous, floral and sweet with intense aromas of rose and violet, blood orange, red berries, licorice and turmeric. The palate is fleshy, loaded with red and dark berry notes, such as mulberry, red currant, black cherry. The soft and round tannins balance the good acidity and lead to a wine a certain volume in the palate. Is the most inviting and generous of the three Gaja single vineyards.” Gaja
“Wow. Such depth in the nose of strawberries, flowers and hints of raw meat. Crushed stones, too. Full body, fine and dusty tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows structure and finesse. Drink in 2020. 97/100” James Suckling
