Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Intense yet ethereal, delicately aromatic yet massively structured, and rich yet finessed, the ’08 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva wafts with pure Nebbiolo fruit layered with rose and violet petals, licorice, forest floor, citrus zest, pipe tobacco and warm baking spices. A stunning wine with a soaring structure, this Barolo Riserva boasts chewy tannins that cling to the cheeks, a lingering, persistent finish, and a weightless, ethereal mouth-feel, characteristics that put it among the very best Barolos. Deriving from just four rows of the oldest vines situated at the vineyard's apex, Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva's elegant profile is like no other. Giacosa makes this Riserva from older vines and ages it for an additional time, to intensify, refine and elevate the drinking experience. The child of a classic, cool vintage, this ’08 Barolo Riserva is a wine that needs some patience in the cellar, but it’ll be gorgeous with time.
