Giacosa Bruno Barolo Falletto Nebbiolo Wine Premier 2007

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2007 Barolo Falletto is an overachieving wine even at this high level. The bouquet has a level of delineation sweetness inner perfume and nuance generally only found in Giacosa s Red Label Riservas. The Falletto impresses for the intensity of its dark fruit and superb overall balance. The extroverted personality of the vintage is quite evident especially as the wine sits in the glass. Menthol flowers and licorice add the final notes of complexity on the finish. This is an especially racy Barolo from Bruno Giacosa but the trademark elegance is there. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032. 94+ --- Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care.

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
