Wine Critic Reviews:

I am lost for words with this wine. Perfumed and so elegant with the most exquisite aromas of roses, plums and earth. Yet always subtle and complex. Full body, ultra-fine and firm tannins. Upgraded. Fantastic finish that lasts for minutes...James Suckling

It's ready to amaze the world with its refined and silky texture, beautiful, soft tannins and pure elegance that make this wine worthy of a few chosen ones, who will truly understand its depth and all the layers it unveils in your mouth. One sip of this wine, and it's clear to you why Giacosa is such a well-regarded family of winemakers.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer B.Giacosa: Bruno Giacosa was unquestionably one of Italy's best and most reputable producers of all time. Whereas most producers and wineries are known either for their great Barolo wines or their amazing Barbarescos, Bruno Giacosa managed to excel at both, something no one had achieved before, contributing to his title as the "Genius of Neive." If you're a fan of delicious Italian reds, almost no brand can tempt you more than a wine graced by the hands of this great master. The wines are precise, refined, purposeful. Everything is perfectly arranged to create a soul-inspiring experience, from the well-developed and intricate textures to the lush, mouth-watering flavor profiles each wine possesses. Expect to be greeted by crunchy, lively red fruits, a touch of tar here and there, as well as soothing herbal notes.

Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barolo: Barolo have cemented their spot as one of Italy's most famous and desirable achievements, decorating the cellars of every serious wine collector. While the grape they're made from is rather dark and dusty-looking, the elixir that comes from this varietal is an almost crystal clear, light red, like a pair of seductive lips glistening in the candlelight.
