  • One of the most highly regarded winemaker in the world, the 83-year old Bruno first learned about winemaking from his grandfather and father when he was only 13
  • Without any formal classroom training, the most important skill he inherited (and proven to be his supernatural talent) was how to select the fruit
  • This was particular important given the winery did not buy its first own vineyard until 1982, he has been sourcing from other high-quality historical growers
  • Today, the winery owns 20 hectares of vineyards, including the "Rocche del Falletto" featured this time

Wine Advocate: 94
"The 2003 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto is a fascinating wine. It is classic Giacosa, with a lovely core of sweet roses, raspberries, licorice and menthol that is currently hiding under an imposing wall of tannins. It is also a wine of contrasts, at times open and accessible, at others brooding and shut down. As it sits in the glass the fruit gradually emerges to fill out the wine’s structure. It had only improved when I re-tasted it several days after first opening the bottle. That said, it will require further cellaring to soften the tannins, as the wine has shut down considerably since bottling. Made from the heart of the Falletto vineyard, it clearly benefits from the age of the vines in these selected plots." (Oct 2007)

 

Wine Spectator: 92
"A little jammy on the nose, with lots of strawberry. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, chewy finish. Slightly one-dimensional now, but should develop wonderfully over time." (Oct 2007)
