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 organically farmed hillside vineyards in the villages of Neive, Neviglie, Treiso and Alba. Fermented for 10-12 days in stainless steel vats, aged for 7 months in stainless steel.
