Thursday morning dawned sunny and mild. It was a pleasant drive to Neive, in the Barbaresco region, one of the four villages that are entitled to the DOCG designation. After an unanticipated tour of the historic center, I found Bruno Giacosa's tasting room in the main part of the village below. Here, I tasted a range of Giacosa's wines, from sparklers and a rosé to Barbarescos to the 2007 and 2004 Barolos.
