2015 bruno giacosa, barolo, falletto

Why We're Buying

In 1980, Bruno Giacosa purchased the Falletto estate, a 13-hectare plot in the hills of Serralunga d'Alba. He considered it the best place to produce world-class Barolo. He wasn't wrong. More than four decades later, the red wine retains its character and value as well as ever.

Dense and firmly structured, this red features a distinctive saltiness underlying the floral, cherry, mineral and tobacco flavors. A bit standoffish now, but all the components are in the right proportions. Best from 2023 through 2048.

Superb aromas of ripe fruit such as plums and berries with peaches and tar. Very intense. Full body, great depth and density. Incredible richness and power with superb length and persistence. One of the most dense and vertical Falletos I have tasted. Try in 2025.
