Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very tight on the nose giving up on hints of menthol and anise. Big fruit in the mouth but balanced by big structure that is just a bit tough. Chewy and muscular in the mouth with a touch of cocoa accentuating the tremendously deep core of sweet fruit. Finishes with great length but this is all potential at this point. If you've got them don't touch until 2014 or so. Should be great but just to tight to call it. 85pts today with potential for 95

Bruno Giacosa:

It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves.

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
