Vintage notes

2009 - Piedmont : 7 / 10 (superior)
2009 was different from 2008 but also a difficult year. The winter was long and cold. Spring was very warm which lasted until June. July was warm and wet. August and September were very hot and dry. It was a year with irregular results; a wine-maker's year. Those who knew how to deal with the conditions often produced very good wines, others may have wines with unripe tannins. Drink or hold. 

Tasting notes

Orangey bright ruby colour. Spice, liquer pickled black cherry, blackberry, dried fruit, tanned leather. The texture is supple, well matured. The attack is fresh, the acidity moderate. The smoth texture and the rich tannins provide a good structure for this medium bodied wine. Serve at cellar temperature in large glasses. Drink now or later.

Cantina Giacomo Vico, Canale d'Alba

Giacomo_02_resize_1.jpgThe estate's origins date back to the end of the 19th century (about 1890) when the great-grandfather of the current owner (also named Giacomo) started growing vines on the hills of the Roero area, an area of strongly contrasting landscapes and wild cliffs. A land made for vine growing since immemorial time and a land of marine origins that bestows finesse, elegance and the famous aromas of tar, roses and dried herbs on its wines. The Piedmont region produces four of Italy's  most famous wines i.e. Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero and Gattinara. Piedmont and Tuscany are Italy's most reputed wine regions. 

The estate consists of 21 hectares. Most wines produced are superiour, classified wines. All classified wines are made from Nebbiolo, Barbera and Roero Arneis grapes. The name Nebbiolo means fog in Italian and stands for the fog which often engulfs the region's vineyard in the morning, especially during the harvest season.  


Giacomo_01_resize_1.jpgThe north of the Piedmont region is influenced by the cooler and often cold weather of the Alps whereas in the southern part the weather is essentially Mediterranean. These diurnal temperature variations (cool during the night and warm or hot during the day) stimulate and influence the development and ripening process of the grapes in naturally beneficial ways.   


Barolo wines mature at least 2 years in large casks and 18 months in the bottle. Other Nebbiolo and Babera wines age for at least one year in casks and between 1 ~ 2 years in the bottle. Young Nebbiolo wines are full bodied, firm, tannic, with a good level of acidity and a high degree of alcohol. They mature into great, complex wines with a rich mouthfeel, multilayered flavours and long aftertastes.
