Dark ruby/purple color. A captivating and refined nose with well-integrated aromas of blackberries, violets and roasted coffee beans. Elegance and crystal purity characterize this extremely complex and densely woven wine with an aging potential of decades.

Wine SpectatorShows lovely aromas of rose and berries, with hints of cream. Full-bodied, with a beautiful core of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Balanced and very pretty. Long. Best after 2012.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Langhe Costa Russi is a bit reticent at first, and two of the three bottles I tasted showed elements of reduction that eventually blew off. A gorgeous center of soft perfumed fruit lies behind the slightly unfocused bouquet. The wine reveals notable clarity and detail once it opens up in the glass, with dark cherries, flowers and minerals that linger on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.
