Tasting Notes

  • RP

    Robert Parker, August 2005,
    Score: 94

    The 2000 Barolo Rocche di Falletto, from the best vineyards of Giacosa's own Serralunga d'Albaestate, is a horse of a different color. Equally intense, it is considerably fuller and rounder, fleshier on the mid-palate and finish than the Falletto, and decisively more complex in aroma with all the familiar notes of tar and roses, anisette and wild cherry fruit. Any comparisons with the 1999 version of this wine, however, richer, more nuanced, and more velvety, a Barolo which seems better every time it is tasted, are completely out of place. And to mention this wine in the same breath with the 1996 Barolo Falletto Riserva is a joke. Drink: 2006-2020.

Region

Barolo

With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
