Notes
Bruno Giacosa's 2005 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto is superb. A big, dramatic wine, the 2005 shows all the power and depth of Serralunga in its broad frame. A host of black cherry, smoke, licorice and tobacco notes envelop the palate as the 2005 gradually unfurls in the glass. Iron, lavender and dried flowers follow. At ten years of age, the 2005 Rocche del Falletto remains an imposing, adolescent wine that will drink beautifully for several decades.

Bruno Giacosa

Bruno Giacosa

One of the true greats of the winemaking world, Bruno is the third generation to produce wine at this family estate founded in 1871. The 20 ha domaine comprisies 5.5 ha of Barbaresco Asili and 14.5ha Barolo Falletto di Serralunga. Driven by a passion for the vines and their terroir Bruno is unstinting in his search for quality, declassifying 4 vintages since 1991. His general approach is that fruit quality comes first, in the cellar his methods are largely traditional whilst bowing to some of the more beneficial aspects of modern technology. The wines are fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks and aged in large oak "botti" for between 1 - 4 years depending on the wine.
