97 points, “There’s impeccable transparency and freshness to this Barbaresco… Yes, there’s power and depth of flavour, but this is all about grace and beauty.” – James Suckling

Famed for his ability to select the finest fruit, the bespectacled Bruno Giacosa was a sad loss to the fine wine world when he passed away in January 2018, making wines like this even more sought-after. But as Decanter Magazine puts it, “his style and standards are being maintained by his daughter Bruna.”

This Barbaresco comes from the Asili vineyard, one renowned for the finesse and elegance of its wines. A masterclass in delicacy, it’s almost as if it has been crafted from silk and lace. Wild berries, racy freshness, high notes of raspberry, cherry and redcurrant, a hint of Christmas from spices and orange peel, and an almost ethereal beauty that will be enjoyed by Nebbiolo fans and Burgundy lovers alike. In terms of food matches, think wild mushrooms, simple truffle pasta and game.
