One of the legendary winemakers of the world, Bruno Giacosa crafted the most prestigious single-vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco wines during a career that spanned nearly eight decades. He joined the family business at the age of 15, representing the third generation of his Langhe winemaking family.
Giacosa’s unfailing pursuit of perfection, his unrivaled palate and his intimate knowledge of vineyards in the Langhe quickly drew recognition and helped establish Piedmont as a leading wine region. The Azienda Agricola (AA) Falletto vineyards owned by the Giacosa family, amount to around twenty hectares of some of the most famous and desirable sites of Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra communes in the Barolo zone and Barbaresco and Neive communes of Barbaresco.
These wines are regarded as contenders for the great wines of Italy and are amongst the most exciting and sought-after in the world. Bruno Giacosa’s legacy rests with daughter Bruna, who continues to uphold her father’s winemaking philosophy to respect traditional techniques while using the best of modern technology.
Both the Dolcetto & Barbera vineyards are in the Falletto sub-area of Serralunga d’ Alba.
The wines of the 2020 vintage all show great structure and balance, while the vintage conditions of 2019 showed cooler evenings that allowed for the development of more traditional wines similiar to the previous vintage.
