Description

Bruna also decided not to release any single vineyard Barolo from the 2018 vintage, for quantities were not sufficient following a rigorous sorting in the vineyard. This resulted in a blend of Falletto and Falletto Vigna Le Rocche for this release. The nose has a clear Mediterranean character, with hints of rosemary, bay leaf and juniper berries. It is ripe and concentrated, but with a clear and precise mineral character. The palate is dense and generous. The firm character of tannins and a precise freshness gives balance and character to the wine. A very gastronomic approach and a worthy expression of 2018. Drink from 2023 to 2040.

Producer Information: Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa

Bruno Giocosa is one of those great characters who would never tell you how great he was. Sadly we lost him early in 2018, but not before he had spent over 70 years of his life perfecting the produce of his beloved family winery. Every wine and vineyard is carefully evaluated and many, many wines are never released. Perhaps is most notable call was to declassify much of the 2006 vintage, not considered bad at all by most observers. His daughter Bruna continues a great tradition.
