2011 Barbaresco Santa Stefano di Neive, Bruno Giacosa

Sadly this is the last vintage of this wine as Giacosa’s 50 year contract to buy fruit has come to an end. So this is a historic wine made by the returning ‘genius of Neive’ winemaker Dante Scaglione. A beautiful wine with waves of almond kernel, raspberry and fine grained tannin, so long and such definition a great expression of Albesani.

This wine is now sold out. Please get in touch with your advisor or one of our team on [email protected] or 01473 313 300 for more information or guidance on an alternative.

2011 Barbaresco Santa Stefano di Neive, Bruno Giacosa
Bruno Giacosa

Bruno Giacosa has always been a trailblazer in the region. Born in 1929, he quickly became famous for his impressive palate. In 1961, he became fed up with his father selling the produce in bulk, and started bottling his own juice. Always focussed on the health and quality of the grapes in the vineyard, by using careful, hands-off winemaking he’s allowed the wines to express themselves. The results are some of the most complex, purest and most memorable wines in the world.
