The wines here are world class but it is the personality and work of one man in particular, Bruno Giacosa, the third generation of his family to produce wine here, along with his vivacious daughter Bruna, which makes the difference. The Giacosa family philosophy is a simple one, based on the respect of local tradition in the vineyard and the cellar, and a driving passion for perfection that is handed down from generation to generation. A shy, modest man but very determined and strong willed, Bruno believes that his wines should do the talking and a tasting at Giacosa is a magical experience. Giacosa's vines are located in prime sites about 400 metres above sea level and total 23 hectares. The 5.5 hectares of Barbaresco Asili and 14.5 hectares of Barolo Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba are perfectly situated with optimum exposure and ideal soil for producing great Barbaresco and Barolo. The Falletto vineyard is truly iconic in the region; its amphitheatre-like aspect creates a very protective, low-cropping microclimate. More recently, acquisition in La Morra has added to the holdings. In addition to the family holdings, Giacosa manages a number of prime vineyards owned by other growers who they have worked with for decades. The overriding ambition of both father and daughter is to achieve the very highest quality possible and to this end they only ever put the Giacosa name to wines in which they have total confidence. Bruno's strictness in this regard comes at a heavy financial cost - in 1991, 1992 and 1994 he declassified all his single-vineyard Barolos and Barbarescos, and repeated this in 2002 and in 2006. Bruno combines a strict adherence to traditional methods with only the fewest concessions to modern technology and the results are remarkable. We are honoured to represent two maestros of Piedmont - Angelo Gaja and Bruno Giacosa.

As far as reputations are concerned, few can match the immaculate character of Bruno Giacosa from Piedmont.
There are not many superlatives that can do justice to this towering figure in Italian wine. This is a man who has dedicated an entire lifetime to creating timeless classics across many decades. His achievements are astounding and even more so considering he has always chosen his own path, regardless of the trend. Giacosa has a very exacting and unmoving palate that has served him well throughout his remarkable career, despite choosing to write off whole vintages even when the critics have lauded the harvest. It is this stubborn allegiance to quality that has come at great cost in the short term but has also ensured a lasting legacy. The top names in any vocation tend to display a pioneering spirit that wins the admiration of their peers. Bruno Giacosa has that inimitable allure in Barolo and throughout the years has set a clear vision for his wines. Never lacking in confidence, this man of few words has always spoken of creating wines that communicate by themselves and transmit their origin. Below is a list of his wines made in a style favoured for early drinking. These are incredibly enjoyable bottles that broadcast the vibrancy and essence of Piedmontese fruit in their youth, wonderfully crafted by the maestro of Barolo, Bruno Giacosa.
