Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva 'Le Rocche del Faletto di Serralunga' 2004

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose was seductive, with spicy wood, red berries, floral perfume, underbrush and olive. The more I delved into the nose of this wine, the more I found. On the palate, it was surprisingly open with silky ripe strawberry, tobacco and tar but the finish pulled me back to reality and velvety tannin enveloped my senses and abruptly shut them down

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
