2015 SILVIO GIAMELLO BARBARESCO VICENZIANA, BARBARESCO DOCG ITALY

Silvio Giamello’s minuscule production numbers and reserved demeanor ensure that his wines stay under the radar. He is a vignaiolo in the truest sense of the term, a farmer whose work in the cellar relies solely on patience, tasting, and the wisdom passed down from previous generations. This entails natural fermentations, aging the wines in botti grandi (oak casks), and bottling them unfiltered. The sunny 2015 vintage gave notably rich wines with aromas of ripe fruit, but some aeration quickly reveals the delicacy and floral notes we love in great Barbaresco—trademarks from this humble master.
