    Description

    Barolo 1996
    Falletto di Serralunga Riserva, B. Giacosa
    3scl
    Bottle (3)


    "Giacosa’s 1996 Riserva Falletto is a stunning Barolo. It is delicate and powerful at the same time, exhibiting a compelling, exotic nose of spices, licorice and tar along with a tightly wound core of fruit that gradually opens in the glass, revealing this wine’s profound personality. Just beginning to show some secondary aromas and flavors, it offers a wonderful juxtaposition of primary fruit and freshness along with more complex notes that have developed in the bottle. I found myself totally immersed in this Barolo and imagine it will offer those lucky enough to own bottles an unforgettable drinking experience for several decades." (97 pts. Antonio Galloni, In the Cellar, May 2006)
