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 »

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba 1998

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly muted on the nose with red fruit, crushed fall leaves and potpourri. On the palate, I found sour red fruit and savory broth with a slightly elevated amount of acidity. Having tasted this bottle in different vintages, young and mature, I have to believe that this is in a odd stage of its life and may show better with more time or a longe... Read More

  • So, should we be excited? Well, a lot of the wine media and critics parade would have you believe so, but if you’re like me and prefer more traditionally proportioned wines, a word of caution is in order.2007 is another hot climate vintage for Piedmont, and the wines certainly show it. While many of the wines show a much greater understanding of... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo Villero di Castiglione Falletto 1985

    Snoothrank:

    The nose here is remarkably gentle yet with excellent persistence. The high-toned notes of tight rose bud and minerals is topped by a hint of hickory roasted notes and all wrapped around really fresh and lively red berry fruit. On entry this is light yet with a shimmeringly sweet transparency. The feel is exceptionally well focused with a touch ... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Barbaresco Santo Stefano 1985

    Snoothrank:

    This is immediately aromatic on the nose with tons of complexity. Waves of raspberry fruit are followed by notes of hot rocks, sage, sweet, candied medicinal notes, hints of caramel and licorice and iron are quite impressive but do fade with air. On the palate this shows fantastic integration with big, sweet dark cherry fruit up front followed b... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Gallina 1985

    Snoothrank:

    Very evolved on the nose with notes of oyster shells, aged beef, and a bit of maderized sweetness, though this still shows some nice fruit tones over earthy soil tones with top notes of mint and just a hint of rubber. This feels lovely in the mouth, rich with ripe tannins adding support. There remains a nice core of bright fruit on entry but it... Read More

  • All my wife and I drink -- the only wines we really enjoy -- are FRENCH Pinots and Beaujolais. However, we are off to Italy in the Summer and don't want to alienate the Italians by ordering French Wine. We also think it would be fun to do as the Italians do while in Italy. So, I would like to start experimenting now with Italian wines -- see if... Read More
