The “Genius of Neive”, Bruno Giacosa’s single-vineyard Barolos and Barbarescos are the expression of a passion for perfection - taking the best from traditional and cutting edge methods. Now led by Bruno’s daughter Bruna, the Bruno Giacosa winery also produces highly regarded Dolcetto, Barbera, white Roero Arneis and méthode champenoise spumantes. THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 92 - Drink Date: 2019 - 2025 - "The 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Vigna Valmaggiore is hitting the market as I write this review. The Giacosa family never made a Langhe Nebbiolo and instead focused their efforts on a site-specific expression of Nebbiolo to fill in the lower end of their portfolio. The 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Vigna Valmaggiore hails from an always over-performing site in Roero that is distinguished by floral notes and bright berry intensity. This hot vintage is more accessible and near term (compared to 2016); however, it offers plenty of that pretty floral intensity that makes Valmaggiore so special."
