Octogenarian Bruno Giacosa has made wines for seven decades—and this is one of his best. It builds beautifully on the palate, showing wonderful balance and vibrancy with superb depth of fruit.

The Riserva is a decidedly dark brooding wine in this vintage. Scorched earth smoke menthol licorice and new leather flow with marvelous intensity all the way through to the powerful finish. Over time the classic Giacosa bouquet of dried rose petal emerges rounding out this fabulous effort in grand style. The imposing tannins will require a measure of patience but the 2007 Riserva is shaping up to be another magnificent towering Barolo from Bruno Giacosa. Anticipated maturity: 2022-2042.

A complex and subtle wine, featuring floral, cherry, licorice and tar aromas and flavors, with a tobacco element in the background. This is firm, balanced by a rich, supple texture and a long, savory-filled finish. Keeps getting better with air. A textbook Giacosa, displaying a combination of intensity and grace. Best from 2016 through 2030. – BS

Tight high-pitched aromas of raspberry spices smoke and dried flowers. Initially much less sweet and open than the Faletto classico but dramatically gained flesh with air while retaining superb precision. Very deep wine but dominated by its spine today. Tannins are very suave. Offers superb depth of texture but today the classico is more floral and high-pitched. 95+
