Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis 2019
Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis
The Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis is a dark, straw-yellow colour. Intense, fine and elegantly fruity bouquet reminiscent of peach, apricot, citrus, fruit and acacia flowers. Fresh and fragrant flavour with soft plentifulness.
The family name was first established in the Langhe in 1871 by Bruno Giacosa’s grandfather Carlo Giacosa - as a commerciante di vini, building a network of excellent local growers and vinifying their grapes at the winery in Neive, near Alba. After World War II, the 15-year-old Bruno joined his father Mario in the family business.
By the time the winery was under the control of the third generation, Giacosa was established as one of the three most important labels in Barbaresco. However, at the same time as he was learning his trade, Bruno was also honing his philosophy of winemaking, based on a passionate pursuit of perfection and the belief that wine should be an expression of location and terroir.
In its Roera Arneis, the Giacosa team has managed to tame the “little rascal” of Alba, using the notoriously difficult grape to produce a straw-gold, fragrant wine with generous white fruits. Pinot Noir finds its way into Giacosa Spumante and Spumante Rosé. Unlike Spumante from nearby Asti, this is produced using méthode champenoise, with secondary fermentation, so a significant area in the cellars at Neive is taken up with riddling racks. Just another example of both Bruno and Bruna’s determination to produce the best quality possible.
