Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet red colour with delicate orange reflections. Fine and complex bouquet with violet and wild berry notes. Its flavour is full, velvety and harmonious. Great elegance in this wine that in the best vintages can bear the qualification “Riserva” on the label.

Bruno Giacosa:
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.

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

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

Acetone, balsamic on the nose. Nice concentration, raspberry, cassis, floral, rose notes. Very nicely balanced. Nice wine, but will not be stocking up at current prices

Medium red. High-pitched, rather cool aromas of cherry, raspberry, white tobacco, medicinal herbs, minerals and menthol. Then Quite dry and backward on the palate, with mint and herb flavor dominating. Almost Barolo-like in its medicinal character... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2009 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 750ml

Beautiful aromas of plums and chocolate follow through to a full body with fine tannins and a focused finish. Tangy and fresh. Better in 2015. James Suckling.

This is rich packed with floral sweet cherry strawberry anise and a hint of menthol aromas and flavors that stand up to the dusty tannins. Elegant offering a long and satisfying finish with a balanced impression overall. Best from 2014 through 2025. 150 cases imported. - BS Wine Spectator.

Medium red. High-pitched rather cool aromas of cherry raspberry white tobacco medicinal herbs minerals and menthol. Then Quite dry and backward on the palate with mint and herb flavor dominating. Almost Barolo-like in its medicinal character. Very young and backward Asili displaying terrific fruit through the retronasal passage. 92+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Aromas are full of plums and lemons that follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a fruity, bright finish. A pretty combination of ripe fruit and crisp acidity. Need two years to come together. Triumph for the vintage. Try in 2013. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 750ml

A sweet sawdust aroma turns to cherry and licorice notes in this fleshy red. The tannins add a chewy texture on the finish, as this stays sweet and long. Best from 2013 through 2024. -BS Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili 750ml
