Bruno Giacosa Barolo le Rocche del Falletto Riserva 2004
As good as the Falletto is, the 2004 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto takes things to another level entirely...essence of violets, tar, licorice, minerals and sweet dark fruit, with a profound expansiveness that saturates the palate. This big, imposing wine also remains superbly elegant and focused, with silky tannins that carry through to a long, satisfying finish. This is a monumental effort and has been nothing short of breathtaking on the several occasions..99" WA 12/07.
External Reviews for Bruno Giacosa Barolo le Rocche del Falletto Riserva
The 2004 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is off the charts. Sweet roses, menthol, tar, licorice and minerals come together in a sensual, elegant style that recalls Giacosa's legendary 1989 Riserva Collina Rionda, a wine many observers (this one included) place at the top of the hierarchy of all-time legendary Barolos. Ripe, sensual, and utterly spellbinding, the 2004 Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto offers superb elegance and pedigree. At this stage the wine remains surprisingly accessible. Readers will want to taste the 2004 Rocche as soon as possible as it will almost certainly head for a long period of dormancy in the near future. This magical Barolo will likely merit a perfect score in the future. The 2004 Rocche is the last wine Giacosa and former longtime oenologist Dante Scaglione produced together from start to finish and it is an appropriate bookend to a wonderful partnership that yielded so many profound wines.
