Azienda Agricola Falletto di Bruno Giacosa

Over the past 40 years, the meticulous Bruno Giacosa has produced many of the best Barolo and Barbaresco wines on the market. His knowledge, passion and curiosity has shaped this spectacular winery’s reputation. His constant search for the finest grapes, from the greatest vineyards has quite literally, paid off. In addition to his vinified purchased grapes, labeled Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa, he has followed the new wave of grower-producers and acquired some land of his own. Asili in Barbaresco and Falletto in Serralunga – and these wines are bottled under the label, Azienda Agricola. The estate is renowned for their Barbaresco crus Asili, Rabajà, Santo Stefano and Barolo crus Vigna Rionda. Their Falletto and Villero wines effortlessly show the harmonious complexities of Nebbiolo. In the end, thanks to the united efforts of Giacosa, and the traditional methods of winemaker Dante Scaglione, their Barbera, Dolcetto and Roero Arneis consistently delight critics and wine-lovers alike. ...

Grapes

Translated to “little sweet one”, Dolcetto produces wines that focus on its fruit and which have low-moderate acidity and soft tannins. Often quite deep in colour, its style can be reminiscent of Beaujolais produced from traditional vinification. Very early ripening (approximately 4 weeks more than its neighbour Nebbiolo), this enables it to use less well situated slopes, such as north-facing ones, allowing the harder to ripen Nebbiolo to take advantage of the sun. Not made to age, it is usually best consumed within the first 2-6 years of production. ...

Piedmont

Piedmont

One of the greatest wine regions in the world in terms of wine quality (and its renowned cuisine and white truffles), Piedmont is also home to Slow Food, further indicating how essential both good wine and food are to this northern region. Most vineyards are planted on hillside terraces that rise and descend numerous villages. Its most important grape in terms of quality is Nebbiolo, the moderately thin-skinned variety that is capable of producing lighter coloured, but powerful and spellbinding Barolos and Barbarescos that beautifully accompany much of its unique cuisine. However, numerous other grapes such as Barbera and Dolcetto are also noteworthy. Whites can also be unique and delicious and include floral and peachy Arneis, Chablis-like Gave and the off-dry, semi-sparkling Moscato d’Asti.
