Bruno Giacosa Barolo Villero 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 1990 Barolo Villero emerges from the glass with a seductive, exotic array of perfumed red fruits. The 1990 offers a greater degree of ripeness and opulence than the more chiseled, delineated 1989, but it is very hard to pick a favorite among these two gorgeous Villeros. The level of density, length and volume here are simply remarkable. With time in the glass, the wine’s signature floral bouquet takes on greater prominence adding to the sense of harmony and elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. (Feb 2010)

Bruno Giacosa:

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
