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. 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 Read more »

  • Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Smells a little gassy and a little grassy with candied plum and black raspberry notes gently emerging on the nose. Rather light and fresh in the mouth, this shows lovely crisp and finely textured tannins balanced by assertive yet not sharp acidity. In the mouth, the flavors are on the subtle side, with some earth-backed cherry and raspberry frui... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barbera d'Alba 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed pretty red berries, hints of herbs and grasses yet somehow subdued. On the palate, it was soft and balanced with great textures, red berries and menthol, as the fruit turned tart. The finish showed fresh cherry. This was an elegant and complete wine, yet nothing stood out to me. Read More

  • The New York Review of Books is not the first place most of us turn (or even the third or tenth) for wine talk, so, as a subscriber, I thought I'd bring attention to this terrific review of Neurogastronomy, a new book by Gordon Shepherd--who is not a wine reviewer with a blog to promote but a neuroscientist.  Although the review title is a bit m...

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo Collina Rionda Riserva 1990

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was everything I ever wanted in a glass of Barolo. It was sweet yet sour, earthy yet fruity and rich yet with razor-like focus. The nose showed masses of ripe red berries with hot dried spices, gravelly moist earth, mushroom and hints of green stems. On the palate, this showed silky, sweet, ripe strawberry yet it also had a savory warm... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva 'Le Rocche del Faletto di Serralunga' 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was seductive, with spicy wood, red berries, floral perfume, underbrush and olive. The more I delved into the nose of this wine, the more I found. On the palate, it was surprisingly open with silky ripe strawberry, tobacco and tar but the finish pulled me back to reality and velvety tannin enveloped my senses and abruptly shut them down Read More

  • Barbaresco Santo Stefano Riserva Bruno Giacosa 1985

    Snoothrank:

    The colour of this wine was simply mesmerizing. Partially brick red but also very orange with glowing orange reflections that seduce a lover of Nebbiolo. This bottle delivered everything I ever wanted in Nebbiolo and more. The nose was very intense with forest, cantina, and ripe Taleggio cheese. On the palate it completely stuns you by throw...
