We sent this in our newsletter out at the end of August, and heard from a number of clients that it was missed in the sweep into September, so we’re sending it out again.
One of the legendary winemakers of the world, Bruno Giacosa crafted the most prestigious single-vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco wines during a career that spanned nearly eight decades. He joined the family business at the age of 15, representing the third generation of his Langhe winemaking family. Giacosa’s unfailing pursuit of perfection, his unrivalled palate and his intimate knowledge of vineyards in the Langhe quickly drew recognition and helped establish Piedmont as a leading wine region. In 1980, Giacosa began to acquire prime parcels in Serralunga d’Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco to produce wines that are rightly regarded as the finest expressions of Nebbiolo. His legacy rests with daughter Bruna, who continues to uphold her father’s winemaking philosophy to respect traditional techniques while using the best of modern technology. The goal is for each distinguished site to produce articulate, unique wines.
“If there was one wine producer I would buy year in and year out without ever first tasting, it was Bruno Giacosa.” and “I am honored to have met him, shared his wines, and remain in naked awe of what he achieved. It wouldn’t surprise me if God were learning the glories of Nebbiolo from the MASTER.” – Robert Parker.
