Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: ...the Asili '99 is even better. Stylish faded roses, dried herbs and leather usher in a superbly structured palate, packed with sinewy tannins and an outstandingly elegant succulence that stays through to a savoury finish. It's a superb Barbaresco, as good as the finest wines produced by this exceptional Langhe producer. (2004)

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less

Web Only 2003 - Soft and cuddly, with berry, tobacco and cedar character and hints of vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, ripe fruit finish. Delicious and decadent. Drinking nicely already. Best after 2005. 1,150 cases mad... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1999 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 750ml
