The Producer

Bruno Giacosa

Bruno Giacosa is a famous wine producer based in Piedmont, Italy. It is particularly known for its intensely perfumed, textured wines from the Barolo and Barbaresco appellations, made from the Nebbiolo grape variety. Giacosa himself famously began in the wine trade buying grapes for his father's wines at the age of 15. In 1964, Giacosa was the first producer in Piemonte to bottle a single vineyard ‘cru’ from the Santo Stefano vineyard.

Many of Bruno Giacosa's wines come from trusted growers, rather than estate vineyards. However, in 1982, the house purchased the Falletto vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba and a winery was built. That was followed by plots in La Morra, and in parts of Barbaresco. The vineyard holdings now total 20 hectares (50 acres), and wines made from these vineyards are labeled 'Azienda Agricola Falletto'.

Giacosa's wines are aged in traditional 5,000 liter bottles, though these are now made of French rather than the traditional Slovenian oak. In exceptional years, wines may be released as Riservas which are given a red label.

Bruno Giacosa achieved legendary status in Piedmont, he sadly passed away in 2018 at the age of 88.
