TN: 2001 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba

  • 2001 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto di Serralunga d’Alba - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (1/11/2020)
    Decanted for 3 hours. Medium garnet color with lightening at the edges. Dense, potent nose of salty earth, camphor, soy, asphalt, violets, alpine air, damp cellar. Integrated layers of autumnal strawberry and black cherry fruit on the palate girded by deep earth, tar, and iodine. Surprisingly zippy acidity and structured tannin leading to a long finish of echoing red and black fruit supported by superb rocky structure and firm grip. Absolutely beautiful and open at this stage. (94 pts.)

Nice note, love Giacosa. We gotta grab lunch sometime, although your cellar seems to be about 7-10 years ahead of mine.


Thanks, breaking bread would be good. As for the cellar, being Medicare-aged has its advantages.
