2005 Angelo Gaja - Langhe Costa Russi750 ml - Standard Bottle
|Label Name||:||Langhe Costa Russi|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||RP96 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate||Tasting Note||:||The 2005 Costa Russi shimmers on the palate with extraordinary grace. The wine boasts wonderful depth and richness in its dark red fruit in a round, generous style that offers lovely balance to the tannins. Notes of tar, smoke and licorice develop in the glass, adding a touch of complexity and nuance that is sometimes missing in this bottling. The French oak is present, but deftly balanced with the wines other components. As always, Costa Russi comes across as relatively accessible when young, but it is sure to only improve with age. Recent bottles of the 1985 have been nothing short of glorious. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.|
