For three generations, the Giacosa family is passionate about it. Bruno Giacosa belongs to that select group that stays true to traditions, in the vineyard but also in the cantina. His wines make you think, certainly leave an impression in terms of taste, character and composition. Bruno Giacosa will only bottle top quality wines and will, just like his good friend Angelo Gaja, sell wine that does not meet its quality conditions through other channels.
The company "Azienda Agricola Falletto" has 20 hectares spread over Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco. The wines mature in the cellars in Neive and the entire process from the vineyard to bottling is managed by Bruno Giacosa himself for the majority of the wines that are marketed worldwide.
Asili is one of the top terroirs in the appellation and Giacosa has been producing a sublime Barbaresco here since 1967. In the nose we get the essence of Nebbiolo with a complex bouquet of, among other things, red fruit, roses, aromas of tea and tobacco and so on. On the palate we find fine acids supported by noble tannins and ending in a complex finish with a long final. Decanting is definitely recommended and the wine can be stored almost endlessly and try to restrain yourself and only open the bottle in 2020 but may also be welcome in 2030.
Bruno Giacosa is part of the handful of geniuses that Italy has in the field of winemaking, with illustrious figures such as Giuseppe Quintarelli and Eduardo Valentini. These winemakers excel in a consistent, extremely high quality requirement and make wines that - in addition to an expression of the region in which they are made - bear the signature of the maker. Every wine lover who has tasted wines by hand knows that their name on the label is a guarantee of the highest possible quality.
And every now and then for the rare experience of drinking a real Barolo or Barberesco by Bruno Giacosa is an unforgettable experience
