History

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised.


The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label.

Vineyards

’Asili’ and ‘Rabajà’ are two of Barbaresco’s most presitigious crus and, in part, share a common border. They both produce wines with well-definable characteristics, owing to differences in soil type: the former giving elegance and delicacy and the latter body and character. Vineyards of Nebbiolo and Dolcetto in the La Morra district, right at its top, west-facing and at 500 metres above sea-level. These are a recent acquisition and an exciting addition to the winery’s compendium, just waiting to be discovered.

Winemaking

Here, trained personnel works in time to the rhythms of nature, vinifying grapes cultivated according to local traditions with full respect to the environment. We are convinced that great wines begin in the vineyard with the production of grapes cultivated by experienced growers. This gives us the impetus to improve quality with every harvest.



Our cellars combine the past and present in a harmonious way. We possess the latest in modern technology but we also respect traditions to produce a wine that maintains its identity, from vine to bottle. Our wine making methods are therefore traditional in full respect of the grape’s typical characteristics.

Hey there. It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you…2017 has been a great year for wine auctions, but not for my tasting notes, at least publishing them. I still have a lot of notes, I just haven’t been able to get them out. Need to work on that. With the Fall season arriving and an extremely exciting September already in my air, I finally sat down and started to dig into dozens of pieces of papers of notes, and then, of course, I had to start here.

There was one weekend in 2017 that I could not let pass me and my notes by, and that was our ‘Greatest Wines of the World Weekend,’ held this past May. Collectors came from all over the country, and even outside the country, to New York City for three extraordinary meals at New York’s finest restaurants: 11 Madison, Daniel and Per Se for three days of Bacchanalian bliss.
While this was an amazing evening in every which way (let’s not forget food and company), it was a bit of a warmup for the two sessions that would follow. It was taxi time, and in less than 24 hours we would be at Daniel, doing it all over again.

I was invited to dine at Da Marco’s, where ten locals had congregated with an assortment of fine wines and company. We started with a couple bottles of 1985 Krug, which got the party started, but I didn’t take any notes.


The notes began with a trio of 2005 Niellons, starting with the Clos St. Jean, which was smoky, toasty with lots of rocks, minerals and ‘gaspipe.’ It was round but balanced, lacking a touch of definition (90). The Les Chaumees was simpler and easier, just OK, not as interesting as the Clos St. Jean (87). The Les Vergers had the biggest finish and the most acidity. It was brighter and the most intense of the three (91).

 John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  tasted  8 wines  from  Bruno Giacosa . In a tasting of  30 wines 

“My notes started out with the universally accepted .Ooooooooooooo, plus or minus an o or two. This was very nutty in the nose, in an oily way this time, and was very rich and almost creamy. The palate was enormous, especially the concentration of fruit. The oily texture of the fruit was amazing and really left an impression. The nose got more and more complex, and the wine had great t .n a. The palate was .so f.ing delicious,. I put. Sometimes, less is more when it comes to the pen. It was beefy and oily with traces of toasted brown sugar. Yum - 97 points Bruno Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto 1990.”

 Omar Khan, Wine Writer (United States)  tasted  1 wines  from  Bruno Giacosa . In a tasting of  9 wines 

“Well, what can you say in the presence of a perfect bottle of one of the greatest wines ever made? The little hill in Hermitage with the Chapel in honor of a 13th century knight, had magic occur in 1961. And that magic is undiminished today. The aromatics are precedent-shattering, a perfume confection of spice-cake, garrigue, pepper, grilled meat, hoisin and soy, some peppermint, and over time, some intriguing eucalyptus notes. You could simply “drink” the perfume and be content…almost. It opens with amazing concentration, but restrained richness, almost as if the body of Syrah had met the sumptuous appeal of Pomerol. Plums and black currants, swirling in that delightful cinnamon dabbed spice mixture at the mid palate, it builds to a slightly game-accented finish ablaze with an intoxicating freshness and vigor that seems to transcend time. It has been on this extended peak for almost a decade, and will clearly continue to enthrall for some time. It deserves every bit of its reputation as one of the greatest icons in memory. 100 Points+ (as with Mouton ’45 the “+” is for the alternate life form factor”
