Bruno Giacosa New Releases 2021

“I can think of no Italian producer whose wines have given me as much pleasure as the Barbarescos and Barolos from Bruno Giacosa.” Robert Parker
“[These] are among the most sought-after wines in the world” Kerin O’Keefe

The late Bruno forged his unmatched reputation on the quality of the fruit he was able to source, first as a negociant, and then as a vineyard owner from his first purchase in 1982. The Giacosa family now owns many of the best vineyards in Barolo and Barbaresco, and the resulting wines are amongst the greatest in the world. It is no surprise to us that today’s release is nothing less than exceptional.

In addition to the perfect 100-Point Barbaresco Asili Riserva 2016, the estate has also produced, for the first time in many years, the sought-after straight Barolo, a wine which beautifully encapsulates the Giacosa style. Meanwhile, the Barolo Falletto 2017 is notable for the purity and typicity of its terroir expression, exuding an inspiring degree of precision and class.

The estate’s offering of Roero Arneis, Barbera count amongst Piedmont’s best expressions of these grape varieties and they are the benchmark by which others are judged.

Please note purchases should be balanced and must include a case of Roero Arneis.

Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Asili Riserva 2016


A superb nose, complex and open, graceful and exquisite. Notes of acajou and cigar leaf, dry berries, sweet spices and coffee and dark cocoa aromas. The palate is dense but precise with fine minerality and freshness. A real sense of identity, purity and the balance of power and delicacy define this beautiful wine. This is a unique vintage for a unique terroir, not too be missed. Drink from 2024.

“This is really muscular and really powerful. It is amazing. Full-bodied, yet tight and super structured with incredible power and super toned tannins. It goes on for minutes. The greatest Barbaresco ever from here? I love the strength with fruit finesse. I don’t remember tasting a young Asili like this. Give this a lot of time to come together. One for the cellar. Try after 2026.” 100 Points, James Suckling

Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis 2020


Following the very promising 2019, 2020 had the parameter of an early harvest due to the warm conditions, but rainfall through the summer changed the profile of this vintage, helping the Arneis to retain excellent tension and developing a rich texture. The sand of the Roero region gives elegance and minerality to this wine, while the aromas are hedging towards confit citrus notes and a distinctive floral expression. This is a wine gaining in precision year after year, and in 2020 Giacosa succeeded in producing a superb example of a very serious Arneis. Drink from 2021.
