1989 Bruno Giacosa, Barolo Riserva, Falletto (RT100) Here is another example of why Bruno Giacosa holds true legendary status among Piedmontese winemakers. This wine shows amazing freshness and laser focus as notes of bright Marasca cherry, dried raspberry compote, spined red plum, rose hips, sappy balsam, classic marzipan and mineral dust lead to an equally laser focused palate. The fruit is fresh and bright, the acidity mouthwatering, and the tannins sweet and ripe, yet making their presence known. Wine geeks tend to talk about the 1989 Giacosa Riserva Rionda more often than this wine, but this is every bit as magical, dynamic, and long lived. Simply put, this wine is friggin’ stupendous!
