Bruno Giacosa Barbera d'Alba 2010
Bastianich & Lynch (Vino Italiano Buying Guide): Some of the longest-lived and most elegant wines in the Langhe... the Falletto vineyard, in Serralunga, is the source of Barolo, barbera, and dolcetto... Bruno Giacosa is a traditionalist, producing fragrant yet austere wines aged for long periods in large casks before release. Buy and hold!
The nose showed pretty red berries, hints of herbs and grasses yet somehow subdued. On the palate, it was soft and balanced with great textures, red berries and menthol, as the fruit turned tart. The finish showed fresh cherry. This was an elegant and complete wine, yet nothing stood out to me.
A little hot. Oaky. Some tannin here.
