Tasting Notes

Giacosa Fratelli Nebbiolo d’Alba is made with 100% organically-grown grapes, sourced from selected vineyards in the Roero area (the Northern bank of the Tanaro river). This wine ages 10 months in large oak barrels and a minimum of 12 months in bottle to allow for flavors and complexity to properly blend and mature.

Light to medium color typical of Nebbiolo, loaded with notes of violets, roses and spices; lively and fruity on the palate with balanced tannins and acidity. Excellent accompaniment to roasts and grilled meat, foundues and medium-aged cheeses.

2012 rated 90 WS “Smart Buy’

2017 rated 90 JS   “this is a pretty nebbiolo d’Alba to drink now” (J.S. Nov 2019)

2018 rated 90+ WA   “This wine is all about simplicity and subtly, and that’s exactly why it is such a natural food wine. It won’t distract from any dish you pair it with, it will only enhance the flavors.” (M.L. July 2020)
