This cru comes from the Falletto vineyard at Serralunga d'Alba owned by Bruno Giacosa's Azienda Agricola Falletto. It displays a deeply colored, rich translucent ruby color. It opens with a sweet, balsamic nose of spices, oak, and minerals, and is packed with layers of deep, dark fruit that gradually open to reveal themselves on a big, strapping frame, with outstanding length and a beautiful note of freshness to cap off the finish.

The producer

The wine-makers Bruno Giacosa have been producing and ageing wine for three generations. Their vineyards are situated high in the hills with a fortunate south/south-easterly exposure and a unique local climate, due to their position in a natural amphitheatre. Although the cultivation of the vines is conducted with scrupulous attention to the demands of tradition, certain modern practices, such as the thinning out and trimming of the vines, are not ignored. The yield of grapes reaches an average of 60-70 hundred kilos per hectare. Wine-making takes place in stainless steel tubs, which allow the fermentation temperature to be controlled by chilling apparatus. The red wines are then aged in French oak casks. If there are bad years, when the wine does not reach an acceptable standard of quality, it is not bottled.

Best with

Red meats and game, stews and boiled dishes and strong, aged cheeses.

How to serve it

It is recommended to uncork the bottle three or four hours before drinking. The wine should be served at 18 - 20 degrees centigrade. The best glasses to use are clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This wine can be aged for more than forty years if it is kept in an optimal environment. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
