Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco 'Asili Riserva Speciale' 2000
Dry, structured Nebbiolo from one of Barbaresco’s greatest producers. Founded in 1961, Giacosa’s wines are renowned for their excellency, fermenting for 2-3 weeks in stainless steel, followed by four years of aging in large French oak botti. Floral, elegant, and red fruited, with earthy, tobacco undertones. Only one bottle available!
This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).
