Description

A superb nose, complex and open, graceful and exquisite. Notes of acajou and cigar leaf, dry berries, sweet spices and coffee and dark cocoa aromas. The palate is dense but precise with fine minerality and freshness. A real sense of identity, purity and the balance of power and delicacy define this beautiful wine. This is a unique vintage for a unique terroir, not too be missed. Drink from 2024.

“This is really muscular and really powerful. It is amazing. Full-bodied, yet tight and super structured with incredible power and super toned tannins. It goes on for minutes. The greatest Barbaresco ever from here? I love the strength with fruit finesse. I don’t remember tasting a young Asili like this. Give this a lot of time to come together. One for the cellar. Try after 2026.” 100/100 Points, James Suckling

Producer Information: Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa

Bruno Giocosa is one of those great characters who would never tell you how great he was. Sadly we lost him early in 2018, but not before he had spent over 70 years of his life perfecting the produce of his beloved family winery. Every wine and vineyard is carefully evaluated and many, many wines are never released. Perhaps is most notable call was to declassify much of the 2006 vintage, not considered bad at all by most observers. His daughter Bruna continues a great tradition.
