The 2015 Barbaresco Basarin Vigna Gianmate is one of the best wines I have tasted from Giacosa Fratelli in many years. Bright, perfumed and light on its feet, the 2015 offers terrific freshness and vibrancy from start to finish. Crushed red berries, wild flowers, mint and cinnamon lead into the bright, nuanced finish. Another few years should help the tannins soften further. This is a very classy, polished wine.

The cherry and berry fruit is bolstered by vanilla and toasty oak notes, adding a layer of wood tannins to the already formidable structure. Best from 2023 through 2035. 600 cases made, 350 cases imported.
