 Wine Spectator 94 points (Dec 15 2013)
A modern style, with black cherry, pomegranate, plum and spice flavors. Supple and harmonious, offering refined tannins and a lingering aftertaste of berry, white pepper and tobacco. Shows terrific length and energy on the minerally finish. This has the structure to develop. Best from 2016 through 2030. 500 cases made.-BS
 Vinous 94 points (Nov 2013)
Good full medium red. Subdued aromas of strawberry, red cherry and underbrush; oakier than the Barbaresco. Then lusher on the palate but with bright acidity and a firm tannic structure giving definition to the flavors of strawberry coulis and mocha. Finishes with terrific definition and a whiplash of fruits and flowers. Impressive potential here. 94+ Points
 Wine Advocate 95 points (Jun 2013)
The 2010 Costa Russi is a vineyard-designate “Barbaresco” (although the wine’s addition of five percent Barbera prohibits it from being called such) that opens to even more profound depth and generosity. As is typical of this cru expression, the wine displays an amazing assortment of aromas that span from the floral to the spicy. Supple, round and seductive, it caresses the palate in the most beautiful fashion. The 2010 vintage is shaping up handsomely for those who collect Gaja’s best bottles. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035.
