Bruno Giacosa Barbera d'Alba, Azienda Agricola Falleto di Bruno Giacosa

Piemonte, Barbera d’Alba DOC

Bruno Giacosa’swinemaking philosophy combines a respect for tradition and conservative winemaking with the selected use of modern technology to obtain the best expression of each vineyard’s terroir. He is convinced that great wines begin in the vineyard with the production of grapes cultivated by experienced growers. This belief pushes him to improve quality with every harvest. In the cellar, the goal is to produce a wine that maintains its identity from vine to bottle, so winemaking methods are traditional and in full respect of the grape’s typical characteristics.
