Bruno Giacosa Barbera d'Alba 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Bastianich & Lynch (Vino Italiano Buying Guide): Some of the longest-lived and most elegant wines in the Langhe... the Falletto vineyard, in Serralunga, is the source of Barolo, barbera, and dolcetto... Bruno Giacosa is a traditionalist, producing fragrant yet austere wines aged for long periods in large casks before release. Buy and hold!

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. 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

The nose showed pretty red berries, hints of herbs and grasses yet somehow subdued. On the palate, it was soft and balanced with great textures, red berries and menthol, as the fruit turned tart. The finish showed fresh cherry. This was an elegant and complete wine, yet nothing stood out to me.

A little hot. Oaky. Some tannin here.
