Bruno Giacosa Barolo Villero di Castiglione Falletto 1986

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

More evolved than the Rocche with less intensity yet more complexity to the earthy core of cherry fruit that bears more than a passing resemblance to it's sibling with more clay and limestone notes anchoring the decidely autumnal notes of dried herbs and incipient beef broth. Big and opulent in the mouth with excellent balance in a succulent, resolved package that has great breadth in the mouth. Lovely balance and firmly at peak with an open, flaboyant character. Drink 2008-2018

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
