Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili Riserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is even more compelling than the Rabaja. Itfloats on the palate with an ethereal core of sweet fruit that calls to mind aprofound Musigny, but with the unmistakable structure of Nebbiolo. The perfumedpurity of the fruit carries all the way through to the deeply satisfying,resonating finish. Made in a soft, seductive style, this remarkable wine isdecidedly more approachable and easy to appreciate today than the Rabaja...Bruno Giacosa says his 2004 Asili Riserva will turn out to be just like his2000 Asili Riserva, the wine he still thinks is the best he's ever made.Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

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
