Fantastic world-class silky-as-they-come red. Thick and dense extracted but without heaviness this elegant Barbaresco is packed to the brim with velvety tannins red- and blackberry flavors and some tasteful toasted spicy notes. Palate-coating smooth and long Nebbiolo. Drink now through 2015. 600 cases made. –PM

Expressive aromas of black raspberry, mocha, espresso, game and smoke. Lusher and sweeter than the normale, with more depth of fruit. The tannins are substantial but hit the palate later.

The tannins are substantial but hit the palate later. Still, this has a serious structure for aging. I underrated this wine somewhat two years ago.

This wine possesses extremely saturated dark ruby/purple colors almost atypical for Nebbiolo. The 1995 Barbaresco Costa Russi is a full-bodied fruit-driven and powerful wine it possesses copious quantities of black raspberry and cherry fruit as well as toasty new oak. There is even an element of sur-maturite in this large-scaled expansively flavored effort. I would not be surprised to see it age for 20-25 years. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020+.
