Macerated cherry, plum, mineral and leafy, herbal notes highlight this tightly wound red. Elegant, with silkiness up front and assertive tannins guarding the finish. Gains complexity with air. Best from 2022 through 2040.—B.S.
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.
