Bruno Giacosa is regarded as one of the finest winemakers of all time, not just in Italy, but across the world. He lived and breathed wine from the start, helping his father and grandfather in the cellar from 13 and full-time from 15. He learnt it all from them, not through study. One of the most important lessons was on choosing fruit, only the best, which was particularly important before he bought vineyards himself – not until 1982. With 17 hectares now in Barolo and Barbaresco’s finest sites and working with a handful of trusted growers, he made wines until his death in 2018 that mesmerised the world. His daughter Bruna now continues this great legacy. From vineyards in Neive, Treiso and Neviglie, this is a juicy red full of charm.
