Reviews for 2001 Gaja Costa Russi

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2005
A silky beautiful wine with plum and berry character. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a caressing texture. Seductive with layers of fruit and tannins. Best after 2009. 890 cases made. -JS

Good deep red-ruby. Sappy primary black fruit and mineral aromas with hints of violet and licorice. Lush opulent and suave but with noteworthy energy in the mouth thanks to brisk harmonious acidity. Very long and firm on... Good deep red-ruby. Sappy primary black fruit and mineral aromas with hints of violet and licorice. Lush opulent and suave but with noteworthy energy in the mouth thanks to brisk harmonious acidity. Very long and firm on the back end with the wine's tannins currently covered by sappy fruit.

The 2001 Costa Russi is a masculine wine showing a rich color along with a dark nose of cherries in liqueur tar and minerals.

The 2001 Costa Russi is a masculine wine showing a rich color along with a dark nose of cherries in liqueur tar and minerals. It is round and soft on the palate offering generous amounts of dark fruit and toasted oak flavors with much persistence. Costa Russi is typically the most accessible of the single-vineyard wines and the 2001 is true to type. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021.
