2017 Bruno Giacosa Falletto Barbaresco Asili (750ml) Pre-Arrival
Bruno Giacosa was known as the “Genius of Neive”. His single-vineyards Barolo and Barbaresco set new standards for the whole region showing wines that reflect a unique blend of traditional and cutting-edge methods. He was one of the profoundly great winemakers of our time. His daughter Bruna has been at the helm of the estate since 2006 and continues to make extraordinary wines for this estate.
"There’s impeccable transparency and freshness to this Barbaresco on the nose, which introduces bright rose petals, lifted orange peel, crushed stones and sour cherries. The stoney tannins trace intricate detail on the medium-to full-bodied palate, highlighting the racy acidity, brambly undertones and a beautiful array of wild berries. Yes, there’s power and depth of flavor, but this is all about grace and beauty. Drink from 2024. 97 points"- James Suckling (27 Aug, 2019)
