2005 Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo d’Alba (Italy, Piedmont, Alba, Nebbiolo d’Alba)

Alba, Giacosa, Italy, Nebbiolo, Piedmont

Very nice wine, as well. Very Barbaresco-like color and nose. Lacks the layers and complexity a Barbareso or Barolo would display, but this is a very feminine expression of Nebbiolo that is definitely approachable and has an earth, mushroom, autumnal, and berry flavor profile that I like a lot. This can surely be cellared for at least 5-10 years and I would recommend staying away from this for at least 3 years, if not 5. Very good QPR. As with most Piedmont and other Italian wines, this is a food companion.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
