The 2007 Giacosa Basarin Vigna Gianmaté Barbaresco is a light to medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of cherry, pine, vanilla and liquorice. It is tannic (decant for 1+ hours) and has a long finish. Sip by itself or drink with salty yet non-dominant foods; drink now-2023. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts - reasonably priced and a recommended buy. Tasted Jan/13.

I believe this producer (Giacosa Fratelli) is completely separate from famed Bruno Giacosa (no obvious relationship I could find). This Barbaresco is modern leaning, with its ageing in small oak barrels (noted in the sheen of vanilla), yet tries to maintain the character of nebbiolo. For the most part, this merging of styles is a success. The oak, while noted, is not obtrusive and the red fruit and perfumed floral elements shine through. Noted (but pleasant) acidity and firm tannin on the finish. Drinking now, but no rush, this should keep. Nicely done. Tasted Dec 31,2015.
