Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet red colour. Intense and complex bouquet with notes reminiscent of violet, liquorice and raspberry. Its flavour is full and robust with tannic texture. Wine of great personality that in the best vintages can bear the denomination “Riserva” on the label.

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

Good medium red. Very ripe, almost liqueur-like aromas of red fruits, dried flowers, dried herbs and marzipan. Intensely flavored, sweet and deep, with the candied fruit character repeating in the mouth. Finishes with rich, tactile tannins and excell... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
