The 1996 Barolo Falletto de Serralunga (Red Label Riserva) possesses extraordinary presence and stature. Dark garnet/ruby-colored it offers a tight but promising nose of road tar scorched earth truffles blackberries cherries and espresso. This muscular massive wine gave me chills. It is an exquisite virtually perfect Barolo that requires a decade of cellaring and should last for 30-40 years. I remember wishing I were twenty years younger when I tasted it prior to bottling ... I still feel the same way. Awesome! Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040.

Explosive nose offers the full range of Barolo perfume: black cherry black raspberry rose petal marzipan licorice menthol leather minerals. A wine of monumental scale but utterly suave and clear as a bell thanks to bracing balancing acids and superb tannic backbone. Great depth and vinosity; really expands in the glass and on the palate. The fruit explodes on the endless ripely tannic finish. The full Barolo experience in 3-D and technicolor. To be released in 2002.

A super well-toned wine with muscular tannins. Aromas of ripe fruit with hints of berries and minerals. Full-bodied with steely racy tannins and a long tannic finish. Give it time. Best after 2006. 200 cases imported.
