Giacosa's winery has been making wine for three generations, and Bruno Giacosa
himself says that his success is due to his respect for traditional winemaking
methods which he believes enhance the characteristics of Piedmont's varietals.
His property covers 37 acres of totally cultivated vines. The altitude of the
estate, its ideal exposure (south, south-west), and the microclimate combine to
create optimal winegrowing conditions.
Bruno Giacosa makes wine not only with grapes from his property but also with
grapes purchased from growers he has known for 30 years and trusts completely.
He, in fact, made his reputation as a outstanding selector of fruit.
The winemaking methods employed by this estate are scrupulous and traditional
without ignoring the benefits of modern technique.
Bruno Giacosa, as referenced by Robert M. Parker, Jr., "... is a quiet and dignified
winemaking genius in Neive ... the least promotion-conscious winemaker in Italy
who prefers to let his wines do the talking for him."
