Bruno Giacosa, just fifteen, abandoned his studies and began working alongside his father Mario, in the cellar founded by his grandfather Carlo in 1900. In 1982, the Falletto vineyard in Serralunga was purchased, which would begin the production of the prestigious Barolo Falletto; in 1996 he will buy the Asili and Rabajà crus, by now very well known as they give life to unforgettable Barolo and Barbaresco. Bruno Giacosa’s wines always prove to be sublime and incomparable, known throughout the world and hailed by experts and critics as among the best expressions of the Langhe.
Refines 60 months of which at least 18 in oak barrels.
Intense ruby red color, with hints and nuances tending towards garnet. On the nose hints of very ripe fruit such as raspberry jam, black cherries and small red fruits, and also hints of dried flowers such as violet and potpourri. Notes of mineral sapidity, and a beautiful bouquet of spices: from black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla, toasted hazelnut, coffee, sandalwood, tobacco and licorice. In the mouth broad, initially soft, it ends with a discreet acidity and ripe and elegant tannins. The end of the mouth is once again spicy and very long, really pleasant.
Ideal on second courses of red meat or game, even very cooked ones, such as braised or baked duck, stews or meats flavored with Langhe truffles.
