Winemaker Notes

Garnet red color with orange reflections. Ample and complex bouquet with notes recalling truffle and licorice. In the mouth it feels dry, full and velvety, unfolding a great personality.

Critical Acclaim

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

Medium red. Backward yet precise aromas of red cherry, blood orange, dried flowers and spices; there's something almost Chambolle-like about this. Then suave and silky in the mouth, but with superb density and energy to the savory red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes very long and chewy, with a broad dusting of tannins and sneaky length.

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Barolo Falletto offers up a gorgeous bouquet of red cherries, flowers, spices and menthol. This is a relatively delicate, elegant Barolo Falletto yet it offers gorgeous balance, tons of inner perfume and a long, refined finish. It is one of the overachievers in 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

James Suckling

I love the juicy fruit character of this wine. Ripe fruit, berries, and dried strawberries. Robust and substantial.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Offers pure strawberry on the nose, with flowers. Full-bodied, with round yet refined tannins and intense, bright fruit. Very long. Always beautiful.

Bruno Giacosa
Bruno Giacosa's winery has been making wine for three generations, and Bruno Giacosa himself says that his success is due to his respect for traditional winemaking methods which he believes enhance the characteristics of Piedmont's varietals. His property covers 37 acres of totally cultivated vines. The altitude of the estate, its ideal exposure (south, south-west), and the microclimate combine to create optimal winegrowing conditions.
