Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba 1974

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has a very evolved nose of bouillon, brown spice, dried mushroom and dried herb though there remains a touch of macerated prune fruit and typical tar and anise notes. Much fresher in the mouth with mostly resolved tannins and a nice silky feel. There are nice red berry fruit tones in the mouth that lead to a savory, tertiary finish with funghi and peaty smoke tones. Perhaps a touch short. Time to drink up. 88pts

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less
