The best red wine I’ve had in many years. Rich notes of leathery/berry notes and does so well after 45 min + decant.

Gorgeous nose, rose, light menthol, pine, balanced fruit and soft tannins, balsamic, cherry, earth, long finish.

Not bad, but riper than I’d like bordering on overripe and lacking depth and persistence.

Not the best Giacosa I had! At the end of his drinking window. Nice notes of black tea, roses, leather, but kind of thin and lacking focus. A little better with food, that makes the score 91!

Killer Barbaresco from Giacosa that showed richness power, elegance & finesse. Dried red cherry, earth, leather, tobacco with notes of balsamic, truffle & rose petal. This was open, full bodied & just beginning to reach full maturity with many years ahead.

Just entering maturity. Rose petal, tar, leather and balsamic. Lovely dry cherry. Elegant but not a light weight. Long finish. Beautiful stuff. The perfect match for Spinasse. 4+*
