    The 2001 Barolo Falletto impresses for its layered, silky personality. Sweet roses, tar, licorice and menthol are all woven together in this deceptively medium-bodied Barolo. There is plenty of muscle to back things up. Today the Falletto is quite a bit more delicate than it has been in the past.

    This is a bright and focused red with plum, berry and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This shows class and strength. 1,200 cases made.

    Delicate pale garnet with a light brown rim. Wonderfully aromatic, with present but not overbearing tannin. Reasonable assumption that this time is now, and not too far in the future for this wine to be consumed.

    Tightly gripping, dusty tannins. Prune, raisin, overripe plum, black tea, and anise. Striking, fresh acid. Excellent old school Barolo.

From the village Neive in the Langhe region, Bruno Giacosa(the "Genius of Neive") produces a number of world-famous Barbaresco and Barolo wines, as well as bottlings of Arneis, Barbera, Dolcetto and a sparkling wine.

As history states, Giacosa began purchasing fruit from select vineyards and worked to obtain what he deemed the best grapes available from an established network of growers dedicated to producing quality. In 1967 Giacosa began bottling single vineyard Barolos and Barbarescos and in 1982 he bought the Falletto vineyard in Barolo taking ownership of vineyards he believed to produce some of the finest fruit he had sourced from over the years.

Over decades Giacosa's reputation for perfectionism has become cemented as he only produces his Riserva wines from the vintages he deems worthy (which are given a red label). A perfectionist and craftsman to the core. These truly are some of the most sensational Barolos and Barbarescos one can own. A producer more than deserving of a place in any Italian cellar.
