Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto d'Alba 2006
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.
Ruby red colour with violet reflections. Winey and fragrant bouquet. Dry and full flavour with a pleasing, bitterish aftertaste typical of this variety.
Dolcetto excelled in the 2003 vintage, and this early release from Giacosa shows just how good it is. The wine shows delicious ripeness, all fresh cherry and bright plum flavor, a simple beauty from Alba. Serve at the beginning of a meal with prosciutto and chunks of parmigiano Reggiano.

Giacosa’s 2006 Dolcetto d’Alba is a lovely effort redolent of crushed flowers, raspberries and minerals. Made in a simple, easy going style, it nevertheless offers plenty of detail with excellent length and a clean finish. This textbook Dolcetto is a terrific everyday wine. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2009. Wine Advocate # 173; Oct 2007 Antonio Galloni 88 points
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.
