A soft-spoken family man rarely seen outside of his vineyards or cellar, Silvio Giamello is a maestro of textbook Barbaresco: high-toned, floral, and wonderfully refined. Look no further for a bright, perfumy Nebbiolo crafted traditionally, raised in botti grandi (large casks). I expect it to reach its peak in about five years.
|Vineyard:||41 - 48 years, 2 ha total|
|Soil:||Clay with Lime-rich Marl|
|Aging:||Aged in Slavonian oak botti (barrels) of 20-30 hectoliters for 2-3 years|
Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
