Giacosa Bruno Barolo Rocche del Falletto di Serralunga Riserva Nebbiolo Wine 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Good deep red. Redcurrant plum sexy brown spices menthol marzipan licorice and a balsamic element on the nose; Bruna compares this wine to the supernal 2000 bottling. The palate delivers a captivating combination of ineffable perfume and buns of steel with strong acidity giving definition to the flavors of rose petal exotic spices truffle and underbrush. Offers lovely breadth with a weightless quality. Really echoes and vibrates on the back end finishing with huge but sweet tannins

Bruno Giacosa:
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.

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

Good bright full red. Tight high-pitched aromas of raspberry spices smoke and dried flowers. Initially much less sweet and open than the Faletto classico but dramatically gained flesh with air while retaining superb precision. Very deep wine but dominated by its spine today. Tannins are very suave. Offers superb depth of texture but today the classico is more floral and high-pitched. 95+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

What a crowd-pleaser at the lunch. The French journalists were amazed by this Barolo and kept saying how it was very Burgundian. It
