Neive, Piedmont

The late Bruno Giacosa’s philosophy was simple; respect for tradition in the vineyard and in the cellar. It is a philosophy that put him at the fore of a small group of passionate and inspirational wine-makers that includes Aldo Conterno and Roberto Voerzio. He was uncompromising in his values and commitment, bottling his wine only in good years, rejecting the use of barriques in favour of traditional botte, and striving to capture the essence of native grape varieties grown in his beloved Piedmontese soil. Many leading wine writers regard him as among the best handful of growers in Piedmont, and a taste of his wonderful wines immediately confirm that view.
