Bruno Giacosa Barolo le Rocche del Falletto 1.50L 2009          
Sku: 1825103*

Made from 100% Nebbiolo selected from 4 parcels of the prestigious Falletto vineyard. The grapes were harvested in early October and the wine was aged in large barrels for 30 months. Less than 15,000 bottles are produced each year. In true Giacosa style, this is a stunning example of Barolo's potential. Its perfume is intense and elegant and reminiscent of black truffles, sweet tobacco, spices and chocolate. On the palate it is full, warm and extraordinarily velvety, with lively character and personality.

Tasting notes
Garnet red colour. Ample, complex and elegant bouquet with reminiscences of rose, ripe fruit, truffle and spices. Its flavour is dry, full, generous, harmonious and velvety.

Rating
 Vinous 92 points (Nov 2013)
(white label): Medium red. Sexy, balsamic aromas of plum, mocha, truffle, menthol, nuts and earth. Fat and deep, with complex flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and menthol. Finishes very long, with substantial tongue-clenching tannins. (The problem in 2009 was getting full phenolic ripeness, said Francesco Versio. ”In Barbaresco especially, we had to pick under very warm conditions, so the wines can sometimes have less ripeness and body and greener tannins.”) 92+ Points
 Wine Advocate 95 points (Jun 2013)
The 2009 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto comes from a south-facing parcel with steep slopes for well-draining soils. The vines are approximately 35 years old. There-s a touch of extra ripeness here, even a hint of strawberry, backed by rich berry fruit, cassis and blackberry. The wine shows its most elegant side in the mouth, where the firming, polished tannins give the wine backbone and grace. It-s deliciously silky and extra fine with microscopic precision. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036.
 Wine Spectator 95 points (Nov 27 2013)
Round and supple, with firm tannins underneath, this red evokes cherry, wild strawberry, tobacco, leather and underbrush flavors. Harmonious in a taut, dense way, offering a long, savory finish. Becomes racier with air, showing fine energy and drive. Best from 2017 through 2032. From Italy.óB.S.
From one of Barolo’s iconic houses, this wine is more delicately structured and forward than usual but still bears Giacosa’s hallmark finesse and complexity. It has mesmerizing perfumes of rose, violet, cherry, strawberry and hints of cedar. The palate shows lively cherry, mineral and spice notes, and has a smooth, silky texture. Drink now or hold 10 years for more complexity.
