Description

The “Genius of Neive”, Bruno Giacosa’s single-vineyard Barolos and Barbarescos are the expression of a passion for perfection - taking the best from traditional and cutting edge methods. Now led by Bruno’s daughter Bruna, the Bruno Giacosa winery also produces highly regarded Dolcetto, Barbera, white Roero Arneis and méthode champenoise spumantes. But Bruno Giacosa is almost as well known for the wines it won’t release because of father and daughter’s obsessive antipathy towards mediocrity…

JAMES SUCKLING 100 points - "I am lost for words with this wine. Perfumed and so elegant with the most exquisite aromas of roses, plums and earth. Yet always subtle and complex. Full body, ultra-fine and firm tannins. Upgraded. Fantastic finish that lasts for minutes. Try in 2026."

THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 94 Drink Date: 2022 - 2045 -"Bottled in July of last year, the 2015 Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche is a daring and absolutely profound expression of Nebbiolo with the depth, thickness and volume you can expect from a warm vintage such as this. This wine is a veritable bomb of aromatic intensity with thick layers of dark fruit, spice and crushed stone that all vie for your attention in equal measure. The mouthfeel is characterized by thick fiber and lasting succulence, all capped with fresh acidity and a firm tannic backbone. This Barolo is classic Giacosa.
