2017 Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto d'Alba, Piedmont
One of the legendary winemakers of the world, Bruno Giacosa joined the family business at the age of 15, representing the third generation of his Langhe winemaking family. Giacosa’s unfailing pursuit of perfection, his unrivaled palate and his intimate knowledge of vineyards in the Langhe quickly drew recognition and helped establish Piedmont as a leading wine region. His legacy rests with daughter Bruna, who continues to uphold her father’s winemaking philosophy to respect traditional techniques while using the best of modern technology. The goal is for each distinguished site to produce articulate, unique wines.
The 2017 Dolcetto is a beautiful example of a "serious" dolcetto, with more intense structure that makes it a perfect accompaniment to not only cheese and charcuterie, but grilled meats and burgers.
