Bruno Giacosa "Asili" 2004 Barbaresco Riserva 150cl
DOCG Barbaresco is one of the great - yet largely unsung - wines of Italy. Similar to it's more famous neighbour, Barolo; Barbaresco is made from Nebbiolo grapes, matured for a minimum period of 12 months in oak barrels.
This wine of the exceptional 2004 vintage is made exclusively from grapes grown in Giacosa's own vineyards in the renowned hillside commune of Asili, about 2 miles northeast of the town of Alba; as a Riserva, matured for approximately 18 months in large, 5000 Litre, oak vats.
Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation.
