The grapes from the extremely steep Costa Russi vineyard undergo classic fermentation over 3 weeks in steel tanks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in barriques and for a further 12 months in large oak barrels.

Our tasting note

The Costa Russi often demonstrates the most refined and finest bouquet of all individual vineyards. It is ruby-red in colour, subtle fruit aromas with nuances of vanilla and plum. Very concentrated fruit, voluminous, dense tannin structure, its finish is rich in aromas. This extremely complex, tightly woven wine has a large potential for maturing.


The Gaja winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859, the great-grandfather of the current owner Angelo Gaja. Angelo is probably the most famous Italian winery owner internationally. No other winemaker has won the «Tre Bicchieri», the highest award from the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso, as often as he has. He has been voted the «Man of the Year» by the Decanter and Winespectator magazines several times. The success of his wines is inseparable from his charismatic personality, and his life is a goodwill tour for the family vineyards. Gaja s wines are rooted in tradition, yet keep an eye on modernity. The company is now already in its fifth generation, and is managed by the two daughters Gaia and Rossana and son Giovanni. The Gaja family s vineyards now extend from Tus cany to Sicily. However, the Gajas home remains in the famous wine village of Barbaresco, where their unrivalled success story began.
