Bruno Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva Barolo

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

Elegant and refined on the nose with notes of mature red fruit, rose petal and dried flowers. On the palate, the wine showcases a silky texture, full body, good acidity and velvety tannins.
