Francesco Giacosa Bianco 2018
- Light, aromatic
It’s not often that we see white wines from Piedmont’s famous Langhe region, much-less a white made from the rossese bianco variety, which until we tried this wine, did not know existed! We’re grateful for the introduction and keen to sing the praises of this wine by Francesco Giacosa.
It was raised in a combination of tank and old barrels, with a bit of lees-stirring, which means both freshness and palate weight - a great combination to enjoy with food. The nose carries nuances of orange and cedar peel, along with pretty white flowers. The palate is all peach and melon, with vibrant acid and a texture that once again, points to food - perhaps a cheesy potato pizza or garlic prawns!
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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.
