Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Upon release, Giacosa’s ’05 Barolo Le Rocche Falletto was a meaty, powerful wine that layered its brooding red and blue fruits with smoke, fresh loam, camphor, licorice and pressed flower petals, all conveyed on a muscular framework. Time has mellowed this wine, and now it shows its telltale Giacosa purity, showcasing transparent Nebbiolo fruit, rose petals and tarry earth. This wine uncurls on the palate with a silky grace, showing a seductive elegance and understated feral power. Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto derives from a small plot of Giacosa's Falletto cru that's situated at the vineyard's apex and contains its oldest vines. Typically needing years before it is ready to be approached, the ’05 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto has just entering its drinking window, yet this wine will drink for the next decade or more.
