The subtle and complex aromas are mesmerizing here in this famous Barolo with strawberries, red roses, citrus and fresh walnuts. It's full-bodied yet reserved and beautiful with an incredible backbone of firm and composed tannins that form a gorgeous tannin line to the wine. It's so silky textured with incredible depth of fruit and a long, long finish. Savory and structured at the same time. This needs five to six years to soften and come together. Better in 2020.

One of the most balanced and impressive Barolos from the hot 2011 vintage, this opens with alluring aromas of mature black cherry, tobacco and spice. The smooth, full-bodied palate abounds with ripe raspberry, juicy strawberry, chopped herb, clove and cinnamon alongside firm but polished tannins that give the wine a silky mouthfeel. Drink 2018– 2031. — K.O.

It spends 30 months in oak and this warm vintage is already showing a quick bottle evolution. This was an early vintage: Fruit was harvested on September 23, which is ten days before average. It shows soft, luscious lines and ripe fruit favors that are both generous and opulent. Yet, there is a healthy crunchiness and crackle in the mouth that makes for a long aging future ahead. Barolo Falletto closes with pretty aromas of dark fruit, spice and shaved truffle. - Monica Larner

The cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors are reserved and almost ethereal in this elegant, lacy red. The tannins accumulate on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2036. — B.S.

Sweet spiced notes meld into dark red stone fruit, mint, sweet tobacco and incense. All things considered, this is a fairly mid-weight, perfumed Barolo from the Falletto vineyard. Although the 2011 isn't up to very best wines from this site, it is great to see the Bruno Giacosa signature style more or less back. I don't expect the 2011 to be especially ageworthy, but it is quite beautiful just the same. A Red Label Riserva will follow in a few years.
