Giacosa s 1978 Barolo Riserva Collina Rionda remains epic. What a wine! Still deep and virile, the 1978 captures a breathtaking array of darker shades of Nebbiolo and Rionda in a year that was cold until perfect weather during the month of September saved the harvest. Waves of tannin enshroud a core of black cherry, leather, licorice, sage, menthol and spice. Time in the glass brings out so much complexity and character. What a pleasure it is to drink the 1978 from an absolutely pristine bottle. Longevity will ultimately be determined by the quality of the cork and cellaring conditions because the wine itself is immortal. In a word: Monumental. [Antonio Galloni, 14/09/2020]
