Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Gallina di Neive 1999

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely color with surprising depth and richness. Eggshells on the nose with spicy green herbs, dry soil, and rather intense eucalyptus. Lovely bitter anise up front, this is chewy and dense with lots of soft tannins and a great example of the vintage. Good fleshy finish with lots of life left this really over-performs in 78.

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
