The dark purple body exudes the aromas of red fruit and faintly exudes the unique scent of morels. It is a full-bodied, fruity, rounded wine.
Carlo Giacosa is located in the Italian province of Cuneo (Barbaresco). The average annual output of the Carlo Gausa winery is 35,000-38,000 bottles, and the yearly production of each wine remains around 4,000-6,000 bottles; among them, Barbaresco Narin and Barbaresco Montefico have only 50 bottles of more than 3 liters. This limited production method allows the wines of Carlo Giacosa winery to maintain good quality and become more valuable in the market. In 1968, Donato Giacosa established Carlo Gausa Winery, a small family-run winery. Carlo and his wife Carla inherited the Carlo Gausa winery. Carlo has been developing the winery for many years, dedicated to producing the best and highest quality wines. Until now, the fourth generation Giacosa inherited the Carlo Gausa winery. Carlo Gausa winery has 5 hectares of vineyards, all located in the province of Cuneo, mainly planted with local grape varieties Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto. The wines produced by the winery are all Top Wine/Fine Wine and the only wineries that produce Nebbiolo and local grapes, using traditional brewing methods and never using chemical fertilizers.
Dolcetto is a black Italian wine grape variety that is widely grown in northwest Italy's Piedmont region. The Italian word dolcetto means "little sweet one," but it is not certain that the name originally referred to the grape's sugar content: it could be derived from the name of the hills where the vine is grown. In any case, the wines made are almost always dry. They can be tannic and fruity, with moderate to low acidity, and are typically intended to be consumed within a few years of release.
