Giacosa Barolo Falletto Riserva 1989

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 1989 Barolo Riserva Falletto is a deep, mineral-driven wine loaded with dark plums, smoke, prunes, plums and spices. Massive and virile, it is an assertive Barolo that commands attention for its explosive fruit and multi-faceted personality. The tannins are imposing, but also beautifully balanced. This is Giacosa's most explosive, rich wine in 1989, and it is utterly divine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. (Feb 2010)

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
