2016 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.
This is a really dense red with intensity and beauty, showing dried fruit, such as strawberries, as well as chocolate, tar, hazelnuts and meat. Really complex and rich. Opulent, yet tense with dusty tannins. Extremely long. Great finish. Hard not to drink now, but will age incredibly well.
This pretty red offers distinctive mint, black tea, cherry, tar, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firm and dry, with the tobacco and tea notes echoing on the finish. Shows plenty of finesse.
