Giacosa Bruno Dolcetto d'Alba 2005

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The last bottle from my original case, this was bitter-sweet because the 2005 Bruno Giacosa Dolcetto has long been my favorite Dolcetto. Deep, dark purple color. Floral nose backed with blackberry, fall leaves and a bit of citrus rind. On the palate a mix of blackberry jam with a sweet vanilla mid-palate and a cranberry finish that really keeps it interesting. Fresh and lively, however the acidity is beginning to take over this bottle. I believe this will continue to decline from here, which is why I opened my last one... that being said, I enjoyed it immensely. A great bottle of Dolcetto.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less
