Bruno Giacosa Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Ratings on Delectable

Mike Saviage Delectable Pro

Tasted blind alongside another bagged bottle. This is reddish amber but more dense and less translucent to the Barbaresco sibling next to it. Notes of cherries, tea, rose petals, some tar, some black earth. This is more masculine and heavy than the Barbaresco. I guessed this as 90 Giacosa Barolo Riserva before both Giacosa bottles were revealed. This comes across as young, and well stored bottles like this one easily have a decade or two in front of it left. Unlike the 90 Barbaresco, which I think is at peak, this 90 Barolo can improve with more age. Great side-by-side compare. Great juice.

Fruit still fresh, if a bit stewy. Lovely, smooth, well-integrated tannins. Savory in the best way.

So good but still needs time. Tannins still need to soften. Amazing but if I had several bottles I would revisit in 5 years

Closed at first open tight. Opened up to lush bright cherry great acid. Tannins a bit harsh but a beautiful youthful wine

Open, in the zone, hedonistic and thought-provoking.
