Dante Scaglione to return to Bruno Giacosa

According to report posted today on his blog by VinoWire editor Franco Ziliani, legendary Langa producer Bruno Giacosa has confirmed rumors that his long-time enologist Dante Scaglione (above, left, with Bruna and Bruno Giacosa) will return to the winery and resume working with the great Nebbiolo maestro again.

More than 3 years after Scaglione’s abrupt and unexplained departure from the winery where he had worked side-by-side with Giacosa for sixteen years, the news of his return is sure to be received by observers of the Italian wine industry with jubilation.

Scaglione’s unexpected departure was the subject of intense speculation and scrutiny and many feared that the Bruno Giacosa legacy would be abandoned by his heirs.

  2. What exciting news! Terrific! Having repeatedly met Dante on visits to Giacosa
    between 1994 and 2003, and experiencing the superlative interplay between these gentlemen, and the phenomenal results of their collaborative efforts, one can only cheer at the news of their reunification.
