2011 Bruno Giacosa, Barbaresco, Asili Riserva
VM89RP95
Internationally acclaimed for crafting wines of pure, refined, and intricate character, Bruno Giacosa embarked on his winemaking journey at a youthful age of 15, contributing to the family winery established in 1871.
Located in the village of Nieve within Piedmont, Giacosa acquired his own vineyards in 1982. Guided by his 'updated traditional' winemaking philosophy, he expertly developed the attributes of the Nebbiolo grape, achieving a balance of power and elegance in his wines.

Since 2006, Bruno's daughter, Bruna, took over the reins of the estate and has successfully maintained her father's legacy, continuing to produce exceptional wines.

“This is an incredible wine that reminds me of the perfect 2000 Barolo Rocche del Falletto. Flowers, spices, leather and animals. Dried mushrooms too. Then changes to Japanese ginger and lemon peel. Full-bodied but refined and so long. It has layers of fruit and power. Decadent. Ripe and intense. Perfect balance and harmony. “

“The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Asili (red label) is a full and generous wine that wraps thickly over the senses. The bouquet shows enormous depth and power with a generous presentation of dark fruit, cassis, balsam herb, cola, licorice, tar and lingering smoke. There is an evident sense of fruit ripeness here that helps to build momentum and staying power. Clay soils in the vineyard site have also helped to contribute to the heft and full-bodied nature of this special wine. The finish is characterized by mild acidity and lingering flavours of ripe fruit. The opulent fruit of the wine recalls the 2007 and 2004 vintages.”

“A rich and decadent Barolo with dark berry, meat and hints of chocolate and spice. Full body, layered and dense with some leather and walnut underlying the ripe fruit. Drink in 2020 but already beautiful.”

“Piercing scents of truffle, rose water, macerated cherry and medicinal herbs are the hallmarks of this elegant red. Less evolved and harmonious on the palate, with a core of sweet fruit and
tightly wound, dense tannins. Stays fresh and long on the extended finish. Best from 2022 through 2043.”
