Tasting Notes

What a decadent nose of white truffles, meat and game with dark fruits too. Full body, chewy and round tannins and great depth of fruit. Layered texture. Very long and intense. Better in 2017.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, August 2014

Good bright, deep red. Deeply pitched aromas of raspberry and spicy oak, with more exotic spices and a whiff of medicinal herbs emerging with air. Less perfumed in the mid-palate today than the Costa Russi but lush, rich and forward, with enticing flavors of red fruits, spices and flowers. A bit less oaky in the mouth than on the nose. Finishes with firm, ripe tannins and excellent length.

Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, December 2013

The 2011 Costa Russi delivers youthfulness and brightness with bold cherry fruit flavors, cassis, spice and mild cola. The wine excels in in the mouth where it shows a great degree of roundness and suppleness. Costa Russi is Nebbiolo with a tiny addition of Barbera. Drink: 2018-2038.
