Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Falletto 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet red colour with orange reflections. Ample and complex bouquet with notes recalling truffle and liquorice. In the mouth it feels dry, full and velvety, unfolding a great personality. Barolo is recommended with meat dishes (especially those with a Barolo based sauce), game, and smoked cheeses.

Bruno Giacosa:
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.

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

A bit fudgy and warm on the nose with fruits that are a bit stewy at first this takes a while to right itself. There is a candied suggestion of vanilla to the fruits, red cherry licorice, red currant even a touch of hot iron minerality poking up through the fruit. Still very youthful but finding itself. In the mouth this starts out rich if a touch soft with very ripe tannins and lots of savory leather, spice, tar and mineral notes up front. It's really gets very big on the backend with lots of emerging tannins in a very muscular style. There is compelling length here and when the mid-palate fills out and the structure softens enough to let the fruit pop this will be great and one of the wines of the vintage. 2012-2030 93pts

This smells both sweet and brothy with starchy vegetal tones on the nose. Lean and bright in the mouth with a core of big, rich fruit full of sweet licorice and gently tarry note but the backend is hot, shallow and short. Who knows what’s going on here. 82pts

I enjoyed the outstanding 1995 Barolo Falletto. It possesses a medium dark ruby color with some lightening at the edge. The intense nose of cedar, spice box, soy, tar, rose petals, and black fruits is followed by a wine with a sweet attack, full body... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1995 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto 750ml
