Notes
The 2014 Barolo Riserva Falletto Vigna Le Rocche is a very pretty wine. Gentle and lilting in the glass, the Riserva is decidedly understated in this vintage. Sweet red cherry, mint, blood orange, spice and rose petal all open with time in the glass. In 2014, the Rocche is a mid-weight wine. It can't match the towering depth of the vintages like 1999, 2001 or 2004, but it is very nicely done and certainly a step forward. Time in the glass brings out exotic spice and citrus notes to round things out.

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.
