1988 Gaja Costa Russi - Barbaresco - 2 Bottles (0.75L)

Description
1988 Gaja Costa Russi - Barbaresco - 2 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - Italy

The 2003 Costa Russi has a broody, mocha-tinged nose with Provencal herbs, burning embers and a touch of sloe. Superb definition but it needs time in the glass. The palate is full-bodied with smooth tannins, quite masculine, tannic, structured, becoming spicier towards the mid-palate. Understated at first but you really feel the fruit intensity towards the finish that linger seductively. Backward and sultry although it blossoms in the glass, becoming ever more velutinous. It needs another 5-6 years.
