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 Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba 2001

    Snoothrank:

    This wine will be brilliant if you are patient and can give it more time... i (foolishly, or perhaps impatiently) tasted recently and will not touch the rest until 2018 or so. My flavour profile indicated the typical pure nebbiolo characteristics, plus dried cherries, raspberries, and a subtle faint black truffle/wild mushroom taste. Big tann... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Barolo 1989

    Snoothrank:

    This had as complete and complex a nose as we were going to see this evening. Redolent of dried spices, fresh rose petal, raspberry, black pepper and medicinal herbs in a nuanced, balance package. On the palate the tannins started out with a chewy edge but quickly revealed their ripeness as they melded into the sour raspberry and sour cherry cor... Read More

    Wine review by Andreas Bakken


  • I just can't help but feel like both WA and WS are rating wines higher then they have in the past. These thoughts are coming from my true love in wine, Barolo. I remember reading reviews on wines from 1996, 1998, 1999, 2001 (all great vintages) and for some of the best producers in that region I would see scores of 90 - 94 for some of the best... Read More

  • Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto d'Alba 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The last bottle from my original case, this was bitter-sweet because the 2005 Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto has long been my favorite Dolcetto. Deep, dark purple color. Floral nose backed with blackberry, fall leaves and a bit of citrus rind. On the palate a mix of blackberry jam with a sweet vanilla mid-palate and a cranberry finish that really keeps ... Read More

  • Giacosa Bruno Barolo Riserva Speciale Villero 1978

    Snoothrank:

    At first this offer a deep, blue clay toned nose that slowly gained in intensity adding notes of spice, ash, musky flowers and ranier cherry. In the mouth this was big and rich with deep, fleshy fruit supported by lots of very finely grained tannins. The fruit was at the dark berry end of the spectrum with a medicinal tone and a brown spiced ani... Read More

  • Barbaresco Santo Stefano Riserva Bruno Giacosa 1985

    Snoothrank:

    sweet perfumed nose of seared fruit and flowers over background notes of celery seed, rust and braised fennel that is exceptionally aromatic and precise. There is a subtle gaminess to the fruit on the palate which is sweetly fruited with wild raspberry fruit and hints of mica and fireplace ash. This is elegant and succulent though it seems to ha...
