Giacosa Bruno Barolo Rocche del Falletto di Serralunga Riserva 2007

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

I tasted this last year and had to put it in this report again after tasting it a couple of weeks ago. This is phenomenal. Clearly perfect with layers of subtle fruit and spices and hints of chocolate. Full and very long. It builds on the palate and ... James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Giacosa, Bruno Barolo Rocche del Falletto di Serralunga Riserva 750ml

Bruno Giacosa:
The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less

Complex and subtle 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. From Italy.

The 2007 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto bursts onto the palate with masses of dark 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

Good bright full red. 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+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
