Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2012 was an atypical growing year for Piemonte--a snowy winter led to a warm summer, but harvest saw cool temperatures--but this radiant Barolo from Bruno Giacosa embodies the grace of the vintage in its open-knit, aromatic profile. Grape yields were also down about a third in 2012, so this Barolo is extra intense and dense; however, it nonetheless conveys Giacosa’s extraordinary hand in its purity, structure and telltale Serralunga palate of bright red fruits, rose petals, scorched earth, and smoke. Balanced and sinuous, this ’12 Barolo belies its warm vintage with its fresh acidity and beautiful structure. One of the most iconic wines from one of the greatest masters of Barolo, Giacosa's Barolo Falletto di Serralunga derives from vineyards that reach 420 meters above sea level, making it an ideal site for warm vintage wines. Grapes for this Barolo ferment for 15 days in stainless steel, and the wine ages for 32 months in barrel, followed by eight months in bottle.
