Bruno Giacosa - very rare and limited!

Very Exciting release from Piedmont Royalty!
These tiny production wines are some of the purest expressions of Nebbiolo in the world. Fewer than 36 bottles of each came into Missouri, call Aaron (314)727-8788 or email to reserve.

2013 Giacosa Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto...$199.99

This is incredibly powerful and structured with so much tannin backbone and ripe fruit. Aromas of plums and hazelnuts. Full-bodied and chewy. Fabulous finish. Needs three to four years to come together. Great wine. No Falleto was made in 2013. Only Le Rocche
Rated 97/100 James Suckling

2011 Giacosa Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva....$359.99
This reminds me of the perfect 2000. Aromas of blackberries, violets, smoke and sliced plums. Subtle, classic beauty for the nose. Full-bodied yet tight and refined. It starts off very slowly, but the finish comes after one minute of tasting. Spellbinding wine. So savory and salty. Extraordinary..
Rated 100/100 James Suckling
Lowest on Wine-Searcher is $425, please ignore the Total Wine Listings which are really for the non-Riserva bottling (we double checked)

2014 Giacosa Barbaresco DOCG....$135.99

Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco has a red garnet color with light orange highlights. It offers an intense and complex bouquet with violets, spices and dried flower notes. On the palate, it is full, structured, dry and well-balanced.
