Established in 1871, Bruno Giacosa is a family owned winery in Piedmont that now represents one of Italy's greatest wine producers. Still a family owned operation, the Giacosa philosophy is a simple one based on the respect of local tradition in the vineyard and the cellar, and a driving passion for perfection that has been handed down through the generations. Boasting vines that are located in prime sites, the estate vineyards are perfectly situated with optimum exposure and ideal soil for producing great Barbaresco and Barolo.£18 per 100.00ml
The Falletto vineyard is truly iconic; its amphitheatre-like aspect creates a very protective, low cropping microclimate that produces excellent wines rich in flavour, with fine supporting tannins and a refined elegance. The remarkable results are thanks to a strict adherence to traditional methods with only the fewest concessions to modern technology. Barolo Falletto, from the producer's Serralunga estate, is one of the most celebrated expressions of Barolo and a benchmark release for the area. Pale brick red in colour, a youthful but beautifully expressive nose reveals perfumed notes of cherry, plum, mineral and rose petal. The palate is full bodied and generously flavoured with a pronounced fruitiness, complex depth and impeccable balance. Breathtaking, layered, and incredibly long on the finish, this exceptional release will reward cellaring over the next 15 years and beyond.
