Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2012 saw a ripe vintage in Piemonte, and this Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto reflects its growing year in its broad-shouldered, swaggering, and lush profile. This wine explodes with red and blue fruits, game, crushed medicinal herbs, rose petals, warm earth and touches of melted chocolate and tar. Big as this Barolo is, it retains its detail and its acidic verve, gliding on the palate to reveal kaleidoscopic layers and a brocade-like texture. Chewy, dense tannins linger on the extended, elegant finish--you’ll be tempted to drink this wine right away, but five or ten years in the cellar will only make it even more exquisite. 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.
