Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo d'alba 2009 Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo d'alba 2009

Made from grapes grown in managed vineyards, the Nebbiolo d'Alba 2009 is made by the legendary Bruno Giacosa, widely recognised as one of Italy's finest winemakers. Made from 100% Nebbiolo grown in the the Valmaggiore vineyard, this offers a great Nebbiolo that can be enjoyed now and for the next 10 years or so while waiting for Giacosa's Barolos to mature!

VINEYARD
Giacosa's vines are all located in prime sites and total just over 20ha. They include 5.5ha of Barbaresco Asili and 14.5ha of Barolo Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba - two vineyards with optimum exposure and perfect soil for producing great Barbaresco and Barolo.

All the fruit for the Giacosa wines come from vines at about 400 metres above sea level, south/southwest facing in an amphitheatre-like location which produces a very protective, low-cropping microclimate.

The fruit for this wine is sourced from very old vines in and around Neive

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Barbera

VINIFICATION
Bruno combines a strict adherence to traditional methods with a few concessions to modern technology.

Skin contact during alcoholic fermentation of the red wines, in stainless steel tanks, can last for anything up to 30 days. The wines are then aged in huge 50-100 hectolitre botti for one year before bottling
