The Other Wines of Bruno Giacosa
Wines made by Bruno Giacosa other than Barolo and Barbaresco.
"EB" stands for Estate Bottled. After 1996, we know that a wine is EB if it says
"Azienda Agricola Falletto di Bruno Giacosa" at the bottom of the label and we
know that it is not if it says "Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa". Before 1996,
they all say "Casa Vinicola Bruno Giacosa", so we only know it is EB if it
comes from a vinyard that we know they owned at that time.
- Rosé and White Sparkling:
Both made from 100% Pinot Noir grown in the village of Casteggio, in the Oltrepo Pavese zone,
in the Province of Pavia, in the Lombardia Region of Italy.

First bottled in 1983.
The first fermentation is carried out in stainless steel.
Secondary fermentation is in bottle and hand riddled.
Aged on the lees for 24 to 36 months.
