Notes from the Winemaker:

The Falletto vineyard is one of the top Crus of Serralunga, in Barolo. The winery of Giacosa is located here. The total vineyard of Giacosa in Falletto covers 13 hectares, part of which is in the Rocche del Falletto Cru.

2017 was a difficult vintage, but resulted in a fantastic Barolo: on the one hand we have a warm, rich, fruity vintage like 2011 or 2015. And on the other hand there is freshness, acidity and silky tannins.


Tasting Notes

A focused and distinct nose, closed and earthy, expressing fresh truffles and some savoury and balsamic tones. Complex and charming palate.
Firm, gritty tannins. Solid and full bodied, warm with a generous finish combined with a delicate freshness.


Ratings & Reviews

97 Points - James Suckling (Vintage 2016):
"This is a really dense red with intensity and beauty, showing dried fruit, such as strawberries, as well as chocolate, tar, hazelnuts and meat. Really complex and rich. Opulent, yet tense with dusty tannins. Extremely long. Great finish. Hard not to drink now, but will age incredibly well. Try after 2025." - James Suckling (August 2020)
