Insiders know that the “white label” wines from Giacosa are some of the greatest values for fine wine in Piedmont. This will be a fascinating comparison of the great terroirs of Giacosa in both Barolo and Barbaresco. Of course, the wines will be paired with white truffles. Giacosa purchased the Falletto vineyard in 1980, but he has been sourcing grapes from the vineyard since 1967. His first vintage of Falletto under his own label was 1982. Falletto is in Serralunga and has an ideal southwestern exposure which allows the grapes to mature slowly and fully. The soil is calcareous which gives the wine its structure and complexity. The signature rose petal, truffle, licorice and minerality are always present. Le Rocche is a small parcel within the Falletto vineyard at the highest altitude with the oldest vines. The wines display Giacosa’s hallmark finesse, balance, and terroir distinction. La Rocche’s first vintage was 1997; previously the fruit went into the Falletto reservas. La Rocche del Falletto is now labeled Falletto Vigna Le Rocche. Villero is one of the greatest crus of Castiglione Falletto. It has southern exposure like its famous neighbor Monprivato. The difference between them is Villero has calcareous clay mixed with sand, while Monprivato has calcareous silty soil. Villero is a structured wine but elegant with fine tannins, fresh acidity, and delicate rose and spice notes. Santo Stefano was first made in 1964. It is considered Giacosa’s most famous Barbaresco. The soils have a high proportion of clay and produce powerful and structured wines of the finest quality. This is the quintessential Barbaresco. Asili’s soil has large amounts of fine silt and sand, which contributes to the wine’s finesse. Asili has the most floral profile of the Barbarescos with signature notes of rose, violets, cedar, and sandalwood. Rabaja is classic Barbaresco, but with a touch more density then Asili. Giacosa considered making the 1996 Rabaja a red label, but as he had just purchased the vineyard, felt it was premature. 1974 was the first vintage for Giacosa Gallina di Neive and 1998 was the last vintage.
