3 Wine Profiles: Legend, Famous Second, Rising Star
Category: U'Wine Famous Second - U'Wine Rising Star
History: Born in 1929 in Nieve, Bruno Giacosa was recognized as one of the best winemakers in the Langhe region. He followed the path of his father and grandfather and started to work in the family business at the age of 15.
His philosophy? He believes that the wines produced in the past were better, at the time when yields were lower, where agriculture was simpler but more tedious, and where winemaking relied less on tools ans techniques and more on the preservation of the fundamental attributes of a given grape variety. It produces wines of character, endowed with a great aromatic richness.
He acquired the sublime Fallero vineyard in Barolo in 1982 and some parcels of vineyards Asiti and Rabaja in Barbaresco in 1996. The famous oenologist Dante Scaglione joins him in the adventure in 1990, they decided together to bottle only the best parcels of the vintage.
He died in 2018 and his daughter Bruna runs the estate today. The wines of Bruno Giacosa combine richness and aromatic finesse, elegance, structure and longevity.
