Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Twenty years in the business and I can say I simply forgot about the wines of Carlo Giacosa. I knew of them in the early days, but was quick to disregard, thinking how can anyone live up to the name Giacosa? Well, Carlo Giacosa does it with value and tradition with these two prized selections – Narin and Montefico, and they are not to be missed. The wines capture the classic 2016 vintage brilliantly. While the rest of the IWM team slightly favored the cru Montefico expression, as it had more a little more depth and structure, showcasing a more savory side, I loved the more feminine Barbaresco Narin for its approachability on the palate and in the pocket. I mean this is an all-star cuvée consisting of fruit from the prized crus of Asili, Montefico, and Ovello. It delivers what a more traditional cuvée should, and that is more balance and harmony in its youth than the sibling cru expression. This is a rich and chewy Barbaresco and you can expect to find nuances of wild berries, dried flowers, orange rind, licorice, cinnamon, herbs, and baked earth. It is a Barbaresco that will appeal to the fans of both Nebbiolo and Sangiovese and it is deceivingly approachable today. Unfortunately, just 400 cases are produced with a handful arriving in the US. It is simply great value for a Barbaresco with pedigree you will not need to wait forever on.”
