Somewaht reticent at first this unfurls slowly with deep notes of hazelnut, coffee, taut fruit, fresh cut plum and the layered, smoky earthy core of deep fruit that all the Giacosas share. With time one finds shreds of tobacco and notes of seared fruit and raspberry jam trying to emerge from this bottomless pit of a wine. Full and balanced in the mouth with a strong acidic spine and tons of fine, polished tannins offering superb structure apon which is draped velvetty fruit with a classic array of cherry, earth, spice, anise, fennel seed notes on the palate. This just grows in the mouth with huge weight yet such fine balance that the dark, chewy palate never becomes ponderous and finishes with great, muscular depth to the tarry finish with a bright, long wild cherry finale. Brilliant and a baby that is simply in a different league than its brother. Drink 2012-2040

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet red colour. Ample, complex and elegant bouquet with reminiscences of rose, ripe fruit, truffle and spices. Its flavour is dry, full, generous, harmonious and velvety. Wine of aristocratic personality that in the best vintages can boast the denomination “Riserva” on the label.
