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 Barbaresco Falletto 1995


    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

Hopefully this'll be easier to search for and come back to in the future.Here's an offer from HDH in Chicago. Anything of particular interest, or of relatively good pricing? This offer seems a...

  • Giacosa Bruno Asili di Barbaresco Reserva 2004


    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.

  • Hey all. I'm a wine reviewer, and just the other day I launched an article on my site about Dolcetto. The wines I featured were from Santa Barbara County, but I'm a big fan of this grape from New World and Old World producers. Does anyone have any recommendations/stories/opinions about Dolcetto? I'd like to get people talking about it. Cheers.If... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo le Rocche del Falletto 1998


    The bottle of the night for me as this beauty wafted intense aromas into the air. The wine showed a classic nose of rich red fruit, accentuated by florist shop, tar and menthol. The palate revealed full-bodied sour cherry and anise with a sweetness to the mid-palate that finished with roses in a soft, velvety tannic finish. Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba 1998


    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
