Tasting Notes

WA91

Giacosa’s 2003 Barolo Falletto is made in an especially weighty, super-ripe style. It offers notable length but shows the adverse effects of the heat, especially on the finish. The Falletto has shut down considerably since bottling, making it hard to evaluate today. It was much more open when I tasted it last year. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

The Winery

Bruno Giacosa

If I said his top Barbarescos and Barolos can rival a great vintage of Petrus for richness and complexity, few, I suspect, would believe it. However, his wines are on that level… if I were restricted to only one bottle of Italian wine, it would be one of the great Barbarescos or Barolos from Bruno Giacosa.”
- Robert Parker

Since 1961, Bruno Giacosa has been producing some of the most sought after wines out of Piedmont. His list of eminent wines is long and strong, and stronger yet is his commitment to quality. Should a vintage be deemed unfit after his scrupulous review, it will be sold as bulk and under no circumstances be sold under the Giacosa label. When a vintage is superb, the “Riserva” is released. Vintages to look out for in particular: 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004.
