Bruno Giacosa- New Releases February 2014
...
Piemonte has produced many superb winemakers over the decades yet few can claim to be as great as Bruno Giacosa. Indeed, his accomplishments have been so remarkable that his reputation transcends Piemonte and Italy. In short, Giacosa is one of the greatest winemakers of our generation.
Giacosa follows an extremely simple philosophy based on the respect of tradition in the vineyard and the cellar. He produces wines of incredible elegance and expression which transport the soul. His standards are so high that he has famously chosen not to bottle some vintages. In good years he produces white label wines which are fantastically complex and powerful with decades of ageing potential. His red labels are made in superb vintages, a few times a decade, when quality is judged to be outstanding.
...
This 2011 is the last vintage of this impressive wine to be produced by Giacosa.
...
A visionary pioneer, Bruno Giacosa also makes exceptional varietal wines and was the first to champion the famous Roero Arneis for which his cuvée remains a benchmark style. Refreshing and pure with expressive stone fruit characters, he has made an excellent Roero 2013. His Dolcetto is also a great success in this vintage. The Barbera 2012 is smooth and spicy flavours while his Nebbiolo Valmaggiore 2012, made from a single vineyard cru, is very attractive and pure.

BRUNO GIACOSA
...
Most everything else that evening was as though it was in "black and white," while Giacosa's was in full, living color!
Over the years I've stopped in the winery a number of times. The main office is more of a shipping facility, while the real winery is a block away.
wpe2D.jpg (11729 bytes) Bruno Giacosa is a very quiet fellow. I don't know if he ever cracks a smile. He is sometimes described as preferring to allow his wines to speak for him (and themselves). I suspect he is somewhat curious to see how people react when they taste his wines, though at the same time, I'd bet to a certain degree he doesn't really care.
...
Giacosa, though, does use French oak, but you'd be hard-pressed to identify one of his wines as having wood since the cooperage is used to develop and mature the wines, rather than to add aromatics or flavor.
Arneis from Giacosa is almost always good. I used to think it was usually the very best example of this white wine but now other estates give the old boy a run for the money. There are some who claim Bruno Giacosa was the first to vinify Arneis, while others assert it was Alfredo Currado of Vietti who made the first.
...
We have the 2007 from Giacosa presently and it's a delightful aperitif wine.
...
Giacosa had health issues and missed vinifying the 2006 vintage. There had been some problems in the cellar and the long-time staff members departed for one reason or another. When Giacosa was able to regain his health, he tasted the Barolo and Barbaresco wines and was quite dismayed to find they did not measure up. Though most winemakers in the Langhe speak highly of the vintage, Giacosa made headlines when he decided that he wouldn't be bottling and selling 2006 "heavy hitter" wines.

Bruno Giacosa is arguably the greatest Barolo winemaker; his wine is released on an allocation system and produced in very small quantities.
...
Giacosa adhere to very strict standards and only ever put their name against what they consider their finest of wines.
...
Bruno Giacosa began helping at the family winery from the age of 15.
...
Giacosa has an established and strong European and US collector base, new markets which are eager to own the best wines of Piedmont are beginning to stress their minuscule production; allocations are small and older vintages very hard to find.

The Wines of Bruno Giacosa
...
And that's exactly what the wines of Bruno Giacosa do. They start the engagement, they give the chase, and they demand your interest.
This week, I'm delighted to offer you an array of Bruno Giacosa's wines, including the newly released '08 Barbaresco Santo Stefano and Barbaresco Asili.
...
This second cru Barbaresco comes from the first vines Bruno Giacosa purchased in this region. However, beginning in 2007 (Giacosa skipped releasing his 2006 Barbarescos and Barolos), the master vintner redrew the boundaries of his vineyards and incorporated his parcel known as Rabajas into his Asili bottling-an action that Piemonte's creative use of "cru" allows that the government-dictated rules of Burgundy do not. Giacosa's Barbaresco Asili has always been a rich, opulent, and complex expression; however, since 2007, it has grown yet more layered and nuanced.
...
The famed Barolo producer, Bruno Giacosa also makes a terrific spumante.
