    A phenomenal red from the master of Barolo. Octogenarian Bruno Giacosa has made wines for seven decades - and this is one of his best. It builds beautifully on the palate, showing wonderful balance and vibrancy with superb depth of fruit. Drink or hold.

    Complex and subtle, featuring floral, cherry, licorice and tar aromas and flavors, with a tobacco element in the background. This is firm, balanced by a rich, supple texture and a long, savory-filled finish. Keeps getting better with air. A textbook Giacosa, displaying a combination of intensity and grace.

    Good bright full red. Tight, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, spices, smoke and dried flowers. Initially much less sweet and open than the Faletto classico but dramatically gained flesh with air while retaining superb precision. Very deep wine but dominated by its spine today. Tannins are very suave. Offers superb depth of texture but today the classico is more floral and high-pitched.

    The 2007 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto bursts onto the palate with masses of dark fruit. The Riserva is a decidedly dark, brooding wine in this vintage. Scorched earth, smoke, menthol, licorice and new leather flow with marvelous intensity all the way through to the powerful finish. Over time the classic Giacosa bouquet of dried rose petal emerges, rounding out this fabulous effort in grand style. The imposing tannins will require a measure of patience, but the 2007 Riserva is shaping up to be another magnificent, towering Barolo from Bruno Giacosa.

  • 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.
