Giacosa Fratelli 2004 Basarin Vigna Gianmaté (Barbaresco)

Basarin (in the Neive area of Barbaresco) is a well-exposed, south-facing vineyard with sandy soils that can be hit or miss with Nebbiolo. Thankfully, the outstanding 2004 vintage shows the best of this special cru. This is a thick and highly tannic wine with alluring notes of beef jerky, hickory, root beer and black currant that would pair with important meat dishes. Drink after 2015.
