Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2011 was a warm year, and Giacosa excels in hot vintages. Therefore, it makes sense that the ’11 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva is a knockout. Layers of notes burst from the glass--succulent red fruits, tarry earth, truffle, rose petals, sun-warmed loam, spices, and crushed minerals mingle in a heady profusion of scents. A powerhouse of a Barolo, this silky wine unspools on the palate to reveal intense minerality, chewy tannins, sweet fruit, and a brocade-like texture that lingers on the resonant, almost endless finish. It may be early to call this wine a masterpiece, but it has everything in place to be legendary. 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. Crafted in only the best vintages, the grapes for Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva ferment for 20 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 33 months in botti, followed by 27 months in bottle.
