Reply to "82 Bruno Giacosa falletto di Serralunga"

The La Rocche del Falletto is a subsection near the top of the Falletto vineyard that Giacosa bottles separately as a red label riserva in great vintages. The white label is labeled Falletto di Serralunga with grapes taken from parts of the whole vineyard. Both are great wines.

I would give this wine a short breather in a decanter just to loosen it up. Ten or fifteen minutes ought to do the trick then you can enjoy the wine opening and developing during your dinner.

I would also suggest you take to the wine to the restaurant the day before if possible so you don't shake the bottle around. There should be very little sediment, but I hate to bounce around older wines just before I drink them. Also you don't want it to be too warm.

Have a great dinner!
