Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche

Barolo DOCG, Piemonte

Bruno Giacosa’s winemaking philosophy combines a respect for tradition and conservative winemaking with the selected use of modern technology to obtain the best expression of each vineyard’s terroir. He is convinced that great wines begin in the vineyard with the production of grapes cultivated by experienced growers. This belief pushes him to improve quality with every harvest. In the cellar, the goal is to produce a wine that maintains its identity from vine to bottle, so winemaking methods are traditional and in full respect of the grape’s typical characteristics.

Tasting Notes

Complex nose of rose petal, ripe fruit, orange peel, tobacco and spice lead to a palate that is generous and full-bodied, but still precise and elegant.
