Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto Dolcetto d'Alba Falletto di Serralunga 2011

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The first time I tasted this I was a little disappointed. It was very tight and a little brighter on the fruit than I like to taste in a Dolcetto but tonight, about 9 months after my last taste, it was fantastic. A Purple color with a deep crimson rim. Notes of Violet, blackberry jam and butter rise from the glass. On the palette it's slightly grapy at first but then turns to blueberry. Very fruity and full bodied. A medium and slightly bitter finish with a hint of citrus, reminiscent of it's blackberry notes on it's nose. What a great evolution from it's initial release.

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
