  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Exotic candied strawberry and musky truffle aromas are lifted by pepper and a floral topnote. Quite smooth if not yet especially expressive, offering a juicy quality to the flavors of red berries, red cherry, mint and spices. There's lovely ripe red fruits here, and nicely sweet tannins, but this wine seemed to clamp down with air. It will need at least a few years of cellaring to express its personality.

    The candied cherry, sweet strawberry, floral and white pepper notes are accented by black tea and tobacco details in this densely wound red. Holds firm on the finish, showing a dusty grip of tannins.

  • 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.
