Giacosa/Bruno Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points James Suckling: This is an exotic red with spices, dried flowers and dark berries. Full body, round and soft tannins and a lovely fresh acidity at the end. Beautiful balance. A gorgeous baby Barolo from the master. Drink now. (10/20/17)

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

This opens with a very youthful nose ful of gingerbread and [pomegranate juice. Very sweet smelling with a spicy, candied edge. Fresh and crisp in the mouth this is lean and short with low intensity flavors. I would expect a lot more from the price and producer. 84pts

Pale and rosy red. Powdery nose with sand and talc notes over whispy smoke, wild strawberry and roses peak out. Develops a strong note of licorice/mint. Round entry with good acidity turning quite tannic through the midpalate, perhaps too tannic at this point, the finish redeems a bit with excellent length and recurring dark spice note with a bit of black pepper and strawberry finale.

Elegant. Classic profile, citrus, rose pedals, mild red fruit. Good structure, balance. But preferr the Sandrone for regular drinking.

Helles Rubinrot; äusserst delikate Nase, duftet nach Himbeeren, Mandeln und Hagebutten. Im Gaumen vollmundig, elegante Würze, feine Röstaromen, zeigt präsente, aber feinkörnige Tannine. Das Finale ist sehr lang und harmonisch.
