Crushed flower petals frame the juicy red and blue fruits in this tempting, seductive ’14 Dolcetto that wafts from the glass with devastatingly pretty aromatics.

Deriving from one of Giacosa’s own Serralunga vineyards, this estate-made Dolcetto, made entirely in temperature controlled stainless steel, is a denser, more textured, more age-worthy evocation of this indigenous Piemontese grape.

For those new to Barolo, this constitutes a premier cru. In the manner of Soldera's magical Brunello, it ostensibly appears like a very light, thin wine. In actuality, it is a mammoth production that will show its incipient depth in the tight, muscular character of its early wonder years. Like Gaja, Giacosa is often typecast, regarded as a pure, unwavering traditionalist. While his wines certainly exemplify the classic style of Barolo in their leanness and restraint, he is not absolute in his approach, as he operates in a state-of-the-art winery and utilizes stainless steel.

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.

Upon release, Giacosa’s ’05 Barolo Le Rocche Falletto was a meaty, powerful wine that layered its brooding red and blue fruits with smoke, fresh loam, camphor, licorice and pressed flower petals, all conveyed on a muscular framework. Time has mellowed this wine, and now it shows its telltale Giacosa purity, showcasing transparent Nebbiolo fruit, rose petals and tarry earth. This wine uncurls on the palate with a silky grace, showing a seductive elegance and understated feral power. Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto derives from a small plot of Giacosa's Falletto cru that's situated at the vineyard's apex and contains its oldest vines. Typically needing years before it is ready to be approached, the ’05 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto has just entering its drinking window, yet this wine will drink for the next decade or more.

Bruno Giacosa nurtures the passion for Piemontese wine that his father and grandfather raised him with. Giacosa’s winemaking philosophy guides him towards a noninterventionist approach, traditional viticulture and vinification, and the creation of authentic Piemontese wines. Giacosa brings out a richness of flavor and an intensity of character to produce wines so meditative that they’re transcendental. Azienda Agricola Falletto di Bruno Giacosa's “basic” bottling from the Falletto vineyard is a lovely expression of Nebbiolo that’s anything but basic. Pure, fresh, and lyrical, this wine is round, full of flavor, finessed, elegant and harmonious. The ’07 Falletto is a stunner, a wine whose approachability is matched by gossamer layers of complexity; each sniff and every sip is a revelation. Giacosa thrives in warm vintages, and in 2007 the Barolo Falletto challenges his iconic Red Labels.
