Bruno Giacosa AA Falletto Barolo 2003
The Azienda Agricola (AA) Falletto vineyards, owned by Bruno Giacosa, amount to around twenty hectares of some of the most famous and desirable sites of Serralunga d'Alba and La Morra communes in the Barolo zone and Barbaresco and Neive communes of Barbaresco. Casa Vinicola (CV) Bruno Giacosa is the label that adorns the wines made by grapes – never wine – brought in by Giacosa, always from long-standing relationships and effectively from vineyards managed with the characteristic Giacosa scrutiny. Between them, these are regarded as contenders for the great wines of Italy and are amongst the most exciting and sought-after in the world.
First time release from various Serralunga commune wines. Presents the characteristic, tough and closed face, slowly opening to an array of mushroom, fennel, spices and blackest berries. Long and unusually silky for Barolo.
Bruno Giacosa is a quiet and dignified winemaking genius in Neive … the least promotion-conscious winemaker in Italy who prefers to let his wines do the talking for him. Robert M. Parker Jr.
