An elegant fruity style boasting raspberry cherry and floral aromas and flavors. This is pure and delicate for the commune with fine intensity finesse and depth.

This is pure and delicate for the commune with fine intensity finesse and depth. The tannins mesh beautifully with the wine's silky texture ending with an excellent finish. Just surprisingly open and approachable. Best from 2014 through 2032.

Good deep red. Perfumed complex nose melds plum red cherry mocha tobacco wild herbs and spices. Sweet silky and seamless with almost painful intensity to its fruit if not yet as complex in the mouth as on the nose. ... Good deep red. Perfumed complex nose melds plum red cherry mocha tobacco wild herbs and spices. Sweet silky and seamless with almost painful intensity to its fruit if not yet as complex in the mouth as on the nose. Healthy acidity accentuates the wine's perfume. Finishes with very suave tannins and outstanding floral persistence. Said Dante Scaglione: "I thought 2007 in Serralunga would be great from the moment of the harvest."

The 2007 Barolo Falletto is an overachieving wine even at this high level. The bouquet has a level of delineation sweetness inner perfume and nuance generally only found in Giacosa's Red Label Riservas. The Falletto impresses for the intensity of its dark fruit and superb overall balance. The extroverted personality of the vintage is quite evident especially as the wine sits in the glass. Menthol flowers and licorice add the final notes of complexity on the finish. This is an especially racy Barolo from Bruno Giacosa but the trademark elegance is there. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032. 94+ --- Antonio Galloni

Dried strawberries with hints of flowers. Full bodied with clean fruit and polished tannins. Very fruity. Need a couple of years to soften. Reminds me of the 1997.
