Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco 'Asili di Barbaresco' 1998

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

Deep saturated red-ruby. Subtly perfumed nose combines violet truffle underbrush nuts and menthol; less fruit-driven than the Santo Stefano. Dense and full but less sweet and forthcoming than the Santo Stefano. Rather brooding and powerful with an austere hint of menthol. Toothcoating tannins are strong but sweet. 90-93 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
