      Barbaresco Asili DOCG 2017

      This wine embodies the Piedmontese character: headstrong, persistent and silent, discreet and strong. Its colour is inviting ruby. Rich, elegant bouquet of berries and spices, initially reserved on the palate, then develops very balanced and smooth with precise structure, polished tannin and tight acidity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "There’s impeccable transparency and freshness to this Barbaresco on the nose, which introduces bright rose petals, lifted orange peel, crushed stones and sour cherries. The stoney tannins trace intricate detail on the medium-to full-bodied palate, highlighting the racy acidity, brambly undertones and a beautiful array of wild berries. Yes, there’s power and depth of flavor, but this is all about grace and beauty." James Suckling

      Barolo DOCG 2016

      The grapes for Giacosa's Barolo 2016 come from selected sites in the Comune del Barolo and Serralunga d'Alba. Lush, rich nose with notes of rosewood, cherries and some campfire ash. On the palate a densely woven tannin, the fruit precise and with the same care as in the bouquet, multi-layered, with beautiful freshness and a filigree acidity framework, which provides an animating spiciness. Long and full on the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A ripe style, delivering macerated plum, cherry, mineral and tea aromas and flavors allied to a steely structure, this is linear in profile, with vibrant acidity and a lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit." Wine Spectator

      "The berry and tar character is already coming through clearly here. It shows readiness and focus. Full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and attractive orange-peel and spice notes, turning to flowers. Chewy, yet polished and pretty. This comes from the young vineyards on the estate."

      Barolo “Falletto” DOCG 2015

      Sparkling ruby red with orange reflections. Perfumed, spicy nose with notes of dried fruit. With increasing ventilation more complex and finer. On the palate a wonderful dose of fine acidity, the fruit reveals itself in these days a few seconds later. Beautiful, tasty tannins. A wine that still needs some years of patience and leisure - but that's 100% worth the effort. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dense and firmly structured, this red features a distinctive saltiness underlying the floral, cherry, mineral and tobacco flavors. A bit standoffish now, but all the components are in the right proportions." Wine Spectator

      "Superb aromas of ripe fruit such as plums and berries with peaches and tar. Very intense. Full body, great depth and density. Incredible richness and power with superb length and persistence. One of the most dense and vertical Falletos I have tasted. Try in 2025." James Suckling

    • Barolo "Falletto" DOCG 2016

      Barolo “Falletto” DOCG 2016

      With the exceptional 2016 vintage, the Falletto proves once again what this wine is capable of. Complex bouquet with subtle sweetness, an inner fragrance and nuances that are generally only found in Giacosa's Red Label Riservas. The Falletto impresses with the intensity of its dark fruit and the excellent overall balance. The vintage's extroverted personality is evident, especially when the wine is left to meander in the glass for some time. Menthol, flowers and liquorice give the wine refined complex notes on the finish. This is a particularly racy Barolo from Bruno Giacosa, which also has an impressive characteristic elegance! SUPERIORE.DE

      "A massive wine from Serralunga, this displays dense cherry and red-fruit aromas that are solid and brooding. Full-bodied with firm tannins that are chunky now, this has immense concentration and force, if not the ethereal quality that marks Giacosa's supreme wines. But it's balanced, with the high alcohol not discernible, and given the slight furriness on the very long finish, this needs time." Decanter

      "This pretty red offers distinctive mint, black tea, cherry, tar, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firm and dry, with the tobacco and tea notes echoing on the finish. Shows plenty of finesse." Wine Spectator

      "This is a really dense red with intensity and beauty, showing dried fruit, such as strawberries, as well as chocolate, tar, hazelnuts and meat. Really complex and rich. Opulent, yet tense with dusty tannins. Extremely long. Great finish. Hard not to drink now, but will age incredibly well. Try after 2025." James Suckling

    About the winemakersBruno GiacosaPiedmont
    Bruno Giacosa

    The traditionalist. This is how Bruno Giacosa was always respectfully called, because he rejected the winemaking of Barbaresco and Barolo in barriques and always aged his wines in large wooden barrels. Even if the name was actually a little unfair, because Bruno Giacosa was always open to new methods and kept in touch with the "modernists like Angelo Gaja, Elio Altare and the other "Barolo-Boys". Without him, the meteoric rise of the Piedmont region would hardly have been possible.

    Already at the age of fifteen he entered the business of his grandfather and became a "Commerciante", comparable to a Négociant éleveur in France. The Giacosas did not have their own vineyards, but bought the grapes of friendly winegrowers and expanded them. To get the best out of the grapes has always been his strength. Already at the beginning of the 1960s. "Top drops only from peak years" was the credo. In 1964 it was such a top vintage, and Bruno Giacosa was the first to bottle a single vineyard Barbaresco from the Santa Stefano vineyard in his home town of Neive. This was a revolution at the time and provided for more discussion than maturing in barriques - and soon found many imitators.

    It was not until 1982 that Bruno Giacosa was able to acquire his first vineyard, one of the best, Falletto di Serralunga, in the Barolo area. In 1996, a few small plots in two other top locations followed: Asili and Rabajá, which (together with Martinenga) are described by many experts as the best crus in Barbaresco.

    The rest is wine history. Giacosa's wines take a long time to mature. He called his winemaking "modern traditional", which meant a maceration of about one month, compared to often more than 50 days in earlier times. Matured in 5,000 litre barrels, he preferred French oak barrels to traditional Slavonian barrels. And he always allowed the wines to ripen longer than his colleagues and usually only came onto the market 2-3 years later.

    If you are impatient and open Giacosa's wines too early, you will usually experience them closed and inaccessible. But if you are patient and allow the wines to mature in the cellar, you can enjoy elegant, complex, unique Barolo and Barbaresco. They are then really an experience that you can remember for a long time. In the meantime, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Roero Arneis are all great ways to pass the time. Or treat yourself to the grandiose speciality of the house, the rare 100% Pinot Nero Spumante in classic bottle fermentation.

    At the beginning of the 2000s, daughter Bruna Giacosa took over the management of the winery, which was actually called Azienda Agricola Falletto, and was also able to win back her father's long-time oenologist and companion Dante Scaglione. Even after the death of the old master Bruno Giacosa in 2018, the continuity and style of the "modern" traditionalist is assured. SUPERIORE.DE
