Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto

Barolo DOCG, Piemonte

Vintage: 2014 was a classical year regarding the weather and climatically balanced without any extreme heat or rain. Worthy of taking note is the range in the temperature during the summer nights between daytime highs and nighttime lows, which favored a good accumulation of aromatic notes in the Nebbiolo variety. The wines produced in this vintage are very fine and elegant, with refined fruit aromas and a medium to high structure.

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.
