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 »

  • 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

  • Vietti Barolo Rocche Giacosa Bruno Barbaresco Asili Rsva 1974

    Snoothrank:

    What a pleasure it was to drink the 1974 Vietti Rocche. The nose showed floral undergrowth, fresh-turned soil with strawberry and, as time passed, a sweet, almost caramel note added outstanding complexities to the already beautiful bouquet. On the palate, it was juicy yet balanced and still showed youthful notes of fresh red berries, cinnamon an... 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...

  • Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Falletto 1995

    Snoothrank:

    This smells both sweet and brothy with starchy vegetal tones on the nose. Lean and bright in the mouth with a core of big, rich fruit full of sweet licorice and gently tarry note but the backend is hot, shallow and short. Who knows whats going on here. 82pts Read More
