Bruno Giacosa Arneis 2019

92 James Suckling

"Dried peach skin with lemon and crushed stone or cement on the nose. It’s full-to medium-bodied. Lovely, soft texture and richness and a fresh finish with lots of dried fruit. A little richer than usual. Drink or hold." -James Suckling

"One of the legendary winemakers of the world, Bruno Giacosa joined the family business at the age of 15, representing the third generation of his Langhe winemaking family. Giacosa’s unfailing pursuit of perfection, his unrivaled palate and his intimate knowledge of vineyards in the Langhe quickly drew recognition and helped establish Piedmont as a leading wine region. His legacy rests with daughter Bruna, who continues to uphold her father’s winemaking philosophy to respect traditional techniques while using the best of modern technology. The goal is for each distinguished site to produce articulate, unique wines. Bruno Giacosa was one of two producers in Piedmont credited with saving Arneis by bottling the wine commercially in the late 1960s." -Folio Fine Wine Partners
