Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto di Serralunga 2005 750ml
Price: $176.00
Currently Unavailable

Ironically, this represents one of the great values from Bruno Giacosa. It is a collector’s bottle that is slightly overlooked. If you follow Piemonte’s most accomplished producer, more than sixty years in the Langhe vineyards, you know that enthusiasts are waiting on his two Red Label Riservas from this classic 2004 vintage; the Barbaresco Asili and Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto. The “Riserva” is referred to as the “Red Label”, since its normal white label is changed to indicate the prestige of the wine. To begin with, the Reservas are rare and limited do to their frequency of production. Giacosa only makes Riserva in stand-out vintages and will only bestow the Red Label on one Barolo and/or one Barbaresco in his portfolio in that respective year. Herein lays the advantage to buying the Barolo Falletto. ALL of Giacosa’s wines are exceptional from this standout vintage, and because of the rules he established only one Barolo can bare the Red Label. The Barolo Falletto is worthy of additional ageing and represents historic Bruno Giacosa at its best, the wine has been made since the early seventies and remains his signature Barolo. The Barolo Falletto will sell for a substantially lower price that the Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva (Red Label), but the quality is there. Just 1,200 cases produced. This will rank among one of Bruno’s great accomplishments. Expect maturing of this wine to commence from 2014-2025.
