Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto d'Alba 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"Giacosa is best known for the world class Barbaresco and Barolo his family have been making since 1871. Luckily, his skill filters all the way down through the range. This Dolcetto is made from managed vineyards that are chosen for their high quality. It is a wonderful grape that makes easy drinking reds in the vein of the Beaujolais crus.Here there is plenty of sweet red cherry fruit and vanilla, with iodine and mineral undertones. The texture is nice and soft but with enough tannin to bring the ripeness and acidity together. Quite complex for a Dolcetto, very defined and pure." --Decanter Magazine

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
