Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Barbaresco Santo Stefano 1985

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is immediately aromatic on the nose with tons of complexity. Waves of raspberry fruit are followed by notes of hot rocks, sage, sweet, candied medicinal notes, hints of caramel and licorice and iron are quite impressive but do fade with air. On the palate this shows fantastic integration with big, sweet dark cherry fruit up front followed by minty mid-palate before turning quite earthy and beet rooty on the backend. The finish shows nice notes of rose petals and orange peel completing this layered, sinewy, and particularly well balanced 1985. 93pts

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
