Winemaking

The Grappa Costa Russi is pressed predominantly from Nebbiolo grapes from Costa Russi vineyard in the parish of Barbaresco and is then aged in barriques.

Our tasting note

The Grappa Costa Russi has a golden colour and evokes thoughts of a typical Piedmont autumn with its aromas. Mushrooms, hazelnuts, straw, raisins and black berries with a fine note of dark chocolate. Perfect balance and elegance on the pallet.

Gaja

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" award 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 Tuscany to Sicily. However, the Gajas' home remains in t he famous wine village of Barbaresco, where the fantastic success story began.
