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.

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.
 Wine Enthusiast 93 points (Sep 2013)
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.
