Barolo Falletto Bruno Giacosa 95js Premier 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"So floral and beautiful with roses and lilacs. Hints of plums and strawberries. Full-bodied, with ultra fine tannins and a subtle yet intense finish of hazelnut and dark fruits. Goes on for ages...95" JamesSuckling.com 07/12 "Medium reddish-amber. Very spicy aromas of red berries, cherry, rose petal and menthol, plus a whiff of darker blueberry. Dense, sweet and bright, with bright acidity and a strong floral element providing left. Smooth in the middle, with more mid-palate stuffing to support its serious tongue-dusting tannins than the Asili. Built for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle...93." IWC 10/11

It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less
