Drinking games with Bruno Giacosa...

While Do Bianchi has been writing some brilliant articles on the odd pair,  I discovered my own odd pairing while in Truckee, California last week... This classic drinking game called Higher or Lower while slugging down the one and only Bruno Giacosa Barbera D'Alba 2008.


This wine was expressive, showing marvelous terroir, spice, strong earth on the front palate, tobacco, complex fruit, and a long finish all while being unpretentious and approachable. No doubt this is a food wine, but what the fuck, sometimes you have to get daring and pop it open for a good old fashioned game of higher or lower!
