Giacosa Bruno Dolcetto d'Alba 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Although Il Maestro could make more money replacing these Dolcetto vines from the storied Falletto vineyard with Nebbiolo, he simply thinks it's cool to make a Dolcetto from a great terroir! Like the Dolcetto Sorano di Treiso, this is a tad more serious than the non-vineyard-specific Dolcetto d'Alba with more pronounced minerality and structure.

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
