Francesco Giacosa Langhe Nebbiolo 2018
- Textured, savoury
In a region as historical and traditionally rigid as Barolo, it’s so very important to support the up-and-comers. Manzone Giovanni is one of our favourite Barolo producers here at the ‘Fo and has been for quite some time. There’s a young winemaker working there called Francesco Giacosa who has started doing a bit of his own stuff under his eponymous label as a side project. This is his single vineyard Langhe nebbiolo, a wine that gets the same love and attention as the wines he makes for Manzone Giovanni. The wine is spicy with fruit in the blackberry spectrum, all supported superbly by a minerality drawn from the soil. It’s fresh, bright and delicious. And since it’s a Langhe nebb, it’s ready to drink now.
Full price $50.00 from the producer.

If you’ve never plugged Piedmont into Google images then now’s the time. A northern Italian region that spoons both France and Switzerland, it’s one of the more picturesque wine regions in the world and better yet, the vinos do the dramatic backdrop justice. Piedmont wines benefit from the warmth of the Mediterranean and the chill of the Alps, and the combination of these climates means the valleys will often be shrouded in fog. Behind the fog you’ll find Piedmont’s two superstar wines: Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the King of Wines in Italy, Barolo in particular is lauded over worldwide but really, there’s more to Piedmont than these two. Aside from juicy, tannic nebbiolo, keep an eye out for barbera, the go-to vino for many Italians.
