Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Giacosa’s ’15 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto has the serious “wow” factor. Fistfuls of brooding black fruits and crisp red berries explode from the glass, underlain by gobs of tarry earth, warm baking spices, dried violet petals, and touches of game, truffles and walnuts. Silky tannins find their complement in unexpectedly kinetic acidity while the wine’s copious dry extract is matched by a sweet floral lift; elegant minerality lingers on the wine’s finish that resonates like a gong. For all this wine’s intensity, the ’15 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto shows tremendous detail--it’s an outstanding effort that will likely be legendary! Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto derives from 40-year-old vines grown in Giacosa's Falletto cru; grapes ferment for about two weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 32 months in botti, followed by eight months in bottle.
