Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2017

Estate: One of the world’s legendary winemakers, Bruno Giacosa was renowned for his prestigious, traditional, single-vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco wines. He began making wine alongside his father at the age of 15 and continued on for nearly 8 decades. During the 1960’s he was a pioneering force in bottling cru Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the “Genius of Neive”, he was dedicated to “traditional vinification, and an emphasis on terroir and typicity”. Upon his passing in 2018, his daughter Bruna, the 4th generation, is committed to maintaining her father’s legacy.

Winemaking: Grapes are from hillside vineyards in the villages of Neive, Neviglie, Treiso and Alba. Fermented for 7 days/maceration for 5 days in stainless steel vats, aged for 7 months in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: Inky red-violet in colour, with aromas of black grape, black cherry, black current, blueberry and a shake of white pepper. Rich blackberry, plum, blueberry, cherry, red currant, wild strawberry along with a dash black pepper fuse with silky tannins and fresh acidity. Chocolate and black cherry are complimented with a subtle bitter nuance on the velvety finish. Plush, sumptuous and rather grand.
