The late Bruno forged his unmatched reputation on the quality of the fruit he was able to source, first as a negociant, and then as a vineyard owner from his first purchase in 1982. The Giacosa family now owns many of the best vineyards in Barolo and Barbaresco, and the resulting wines are amongst the greatest in the world. It is no surprise to us that today’s release is nothing less than exceptional.
Tasted from tank, to be bottled in March 2021. Following the very promising 2019, 2020 had the parameter of an early harvest due to the warm conditions, but rainfall through the summer changed the profile of this vintage, helping the Arneis to retain excellent tension and developing a rich texture. The sand of the Roero region gives elegance and minerality to this wine, while the aromas are hedging towards confit citrus notes and a distinctive floral expression. This is a wine gaining in precision year after year, and in 2020 Giacosa succeeded in producing a superb example of a very serious Arneis. Drink from 2021.
