Bruno Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2007 (1500ml)

$1399

...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 2007 Riserva is shaping up to be another magnificent, towering Barolo from Bruno Giacosa.

Inexcusably young to be drinking now, but this has all the stuffing and nuance even now.

Intense and captivating bouquet, cherries stewed with fernet, lots of young tannin

An hour or two of air and it blossoms. Perfect right now - truly a great Barolo.

Young but clearly a long haul wine. Bright nose, rose, cherry, menthol. Long finish but not heavy in any way at all. Red Label, few do it better.
