Tasting Notes

JS97

A young wine that builds on the palate with plums, spices, cedar and hints of chocolate. Turns to hazelnuts. Full to medium body, but this builds on the palate. Juicy and chewy with caressing tannins. Love the way it grows on the palate. Better in 2019.

WS94

A gorgeous red, featuring all the hallmarks of great Barolo, with cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors that show hints of tar and licorice. The beefy tannins are there, but they’re not overwhelming, and this glides to a lingering aftertaste of fruit, mineral and savory elements. Best from 2020 through 2038.

The Winery

Bruno Giacosa

If I said his top Barbarescos and Barolos can rival a great vintage of Petrus for richness and complexity, few, I suspect, would believe it. However, his wines are on that level… if I were restricted to only one bottle of Italian wine, it would be one of the great Barbarescos or Barolos from Bruno Giacosa.”
- Robert Parker

Since 1961, Bruno Giacosa has been producing some of the most sought after wines out of Piedmont. His list of eminent wines is long and strong, and stronger yet is his commitment to quality. Should a vintage be deemed unfit after his scrupulous review, it will be sold as bulk and under no circumstances be sold under the Giacosa label. When a vintage is superb, the “Riserva” is released. Vintages to look out for in particular: 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004.
