Description Sub Region Producer Notes
While 2014 plagued Barolo with hail, the turbulent yet warm vintage faired much, much better in Barbaresco, and Giacosa’s ’14 Barbaresco shows a classic, muscular profile that borders on the austere. Silky yet taut, this wine frames its pure red fruits with pressed rose petals, warm chocolate, fresh earth, licorice, tobacco and tar. Firm, chewy tannins need some time to integrate, but give this wine a year or two of maturity to reveal its sweet fruit, conveyed on a vibrant, rich palate. Deriving from 15-year-old vines grown in a southwestern-facing plot with calcareous, sandy soils, grapes ferment for about three weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 18 months in botti, followed by eight months in bottle. Giacosa rarely produces its Barbaresco, whose grapes come mostly from the lower slopes of its Asili parcel blended with some grapes from Rabajà, and the fact that 2008 was its most recent appearance, makes this wine yet more special.
