About the domain
Bruno Giacosa established his reputation in the 1980s as a benchmark producer in Italy. He is considered a traditionalist, and chooses his parcels and grapes with scrupulous care and only vinifies if conditions are optimal. The stringent criteria and precision of a producer of grands crus are reflected in the subtlety and complexity of his wines.
About the cuvée
The wine has a garnet-red appearance with orangey hints. Truffle and liquorice notes add complexity to the aromatic bouquet, which is unusual in a Nebbiolo. The palate is slightly austere in its youth but, after a few years' keeping, reveals velvety tannins and great character.
