Barbaresco is the more feminine expression of Nebbiolo in the Langhe, a counterpoint to Barolo. Giacosa is one of the greatest producers the region has ever seen. 1998 was a fine vintage, a bit soft, gentle even and early maturing. The wine snobs have passed it over, leaving a few bottles on the shelves at a discount price. This is a great opportunity to get the wine of one of the giants of Piedmonte that is both ready to drink and affordable.
