Costa Russi

Gaja, Costa Russi, Barbaresco 1990

This is starting to show maderised aromas, which suggests it is past its peak. Dull medium cherry colour with orange rim. Orange peel, dark chocolate, dry figs, caramel and candle wax on the nose. Medium-bodied palate with tight tannins, medium intensity and decent complexity, but a slightly short finish.
