The flagship wine of the Giovanni estate, is a superb Barolo! It is classic, graceful and a fine example of a "true art form" of the winemaker.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
"A beguiling, deep bouquet melds seamlessly into dark cherries, menthol and spices as the 2006 Barolo Giachini flows onto the palate. This shows gorgeous detail and delineation, with additional layers of textural richness from the well-integrated French oak. A superbly elegant and beautifully crafted wine, the 2006 Barolo Giachini is a terrific effort from one of La Morra’s top sites."

"Sexy perfume of plum, brown spices and minerals. Sweet, fleshy and ripe but with plenty of underlying structure and power. This very concentrated 2006 is best today on the very long, suave back end, which displays excellent energy, a note of dried flowers and an enticing oaky sweetness."
Wine Spectator (WS): 95
"This is lovely, drawing you in with its mint, menthol, plum, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. It's full of sweet fruit that's nicely balanced with the firm structure. The terrific aftertaste conjures up exotic spices and leather. "
James Suckling (JS): 92
"What a nose. It shows so much decadent and exotic fruit and spices on the nose. It’s full bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, mouth puckering finish. But it’s so enticing already."
