“The Giacosa Family focusses on respecting Piemonte tradition in the vineyard and in the cellar.”
The soils in Piemonte are influenced by their location within the mountain. The top of the hills are poor and essentially based on alluvial deposits. The lower part of the mountain is made up of clay-limestone soil with a variable proportion of sand, which often determines the degree of finesse in the wines. Piedmont sits at the foot of the Western Alps which encircle the best sites around the cities of Alba and Asti - made up with calcareous marl and sandstone.
History / Ethos
Bruno Giacosa crafted the most prestigious single-vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco wines during a career that spanned over 60 years. Thanks to that, Giacosa stands as one of the most respected producers of traditionally styled Barolo and Barbaresco. The research of perfection was passed on to his daughter Bruna, who has been in charge of the family business since 2006. The wines come from their different holdings or from trusted growers they have been working with for a long time.
