94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007

($200; white label) Fascinating aromas of game, tobacco, flowers, eucalyptus and wild mint. Sweet, superconcentrated and fine-grained. Combines an almost extreme sweetness for Giacosa Barbaresco with terrific acidity and compelling inner-palate perfume. This really reverberates in the mouth! A wonderfully sweet, silky wine that finishes with a firm tannic spine. As with the 2004, this is more classic than the 2000, but the Burgundian subtlety and complexity of that earlier vintage still make me crazy.

Nevertheless, delicious now, if a bit tight and grippy - definitely decant and serve with Osso Bucco or a big, thick grilled veal chop Val d'Aostana!

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo based wines made outside the Langhe hills are often lost in the commotion over Barolo and Barbaresco. The provinces of Vercelli and Novarra in the northern reaches of the Piedmont area are home to wines like Carema, Ghemme, and Gattinara. The latter two wines are mostly Nebbiolo, which as traditionally been blended with...
