Giacosa Labels

Front Page | Recent Changes | Title Index | Help
The Barbarescos and Barolos of Bruno Giacosa are some of the mostly highly sought and greatest wines of Italy. His variety of crus in the regions and his fastidious respect for the use of the Riserva designation have lead to a great deal of confusion in CellarTracker. Please pay careful attention to the following:

There is also additional confusion as all Giacosa labels contain the word "Azienda Agricola FALLETTO di Bruno Giacosa" with Falletto in large gold typeface. (see below) This has led to confusion where the basic Barolo has been entered into CellarTracker as "Falletto."

Per Ken Vastola, starting in 1996, Giacosa has divided into two winery names based on whether the grapes are estate grown (i.e. if he owns the vineyard). This is fairly typical in Piedmont and has something to do with tax breaks for "Azienda Agricola" which only bottle estate bottled wine.

However, for simplicity and to avoid duplication in CellarTracker we only use "Bruno Giacosa" as the producer name.

Please also see this guide for other information.
