Giacosa/Bruno Barolo Falletto 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): The white label 2011 Barolo Falletto will be released in January 2015. There will be a red label as well in 2011 to be released in 2017. This is a generous and expressive wine that reflects the softness and boldness of the hot 2011 vintage. The Bruno Giacosa house style tends to favor warm vintages such as 2000, 2007 and now 2011, daughter Bruna tells me. The wine enjoys good support at the back thanks to the firm nature of the tannins. The high altitude vineyards (at 420 meters above sea level) have helped to keep the fruit fresh and not weighed down by jammy tones that are present in the fruit used in the 2011 Barbaresco Albesani Vigna Santo Stefano, for example. This Barolo pulls out a great inner elegance. Drink: 2017-2030. (Jul 2014)

Bruno Giacosa:

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 encom... Read more
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
