    Fine craftsmanship behind this traditional Barbaresco. Gorgeous, ripe fruit and round body lead to a silky midpalate, with rose petal, roasted chestnut, plum, cherry and mineral complexity. Great balance, with firm but ripe tannins clamping down the finish.

  • From the village Neive in the Langhe region, Bruno Giacosa(the "Genius of Neive") produces a number of world-famous Barbaresco and Barolo wines, as well as bottlings of Arneis, Barbera, Dolcetto and a sparkling wine.

    As history states, Giacosa began purchasing fruit from select vineyards and worked to obtain what he deemed the best grapes available from an established network of growers dedicated to producing quality. In 1967 Giacosa began bottling single vineyard Barolos and Barbarescos and in 1982 he bought the Falletto vineyard in Barolo taking ownership of vineyards he believed to produce some of the finest fruit he had sourced from over the years.

    Over decades Giacosa's reputation for perfectionism has become cemented as he only produces his Riserva wines from the vintages he deems worthy (which are given a red label). A perfectionist and craftsman to the core. These truly are some of the most sensational Barolos and Barbarescos one can own. A producer more than deserving of a place in any Italian cellar.
