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.
Giacosa's 2013 Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche is powerful and intense, with fine overall depth and persistence, but less in the way of finesse. With time in the glass, the 2013 opens up nicely. Even so, the inner sweetness and perfume that is such a Giacosa signature never develops. Moreover, the lack of color and overall freshness suggest the 2013 is a wine to drink over the near and medium term, but not longer. The Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche is the same wine that was previously labeled Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto. Date Tasted: Oct 2017; Drink: 2018-2028; Rating: 91 Points; Antonio Galloni
