2005 Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Costa Russi

Wine Description

Good full medium red. Complex aromas of red fruits, truffle and underbrush. Lush and sweet but firm, with bright acidity and building tannins providing plenty of structural support. The dark fruit flavors display very good ripeness but are currently shut down by the wine's serious mouthcoating tannins.
