    Barolo 2001
    Rocche del Falletto di Serralunga, Riserva, B. Giacosa
    5lscl, 2owc
    Bottle (12)
    "Darker and more backward than the Falletto in both its aromas and flavors, Giacosa's staggering 2001 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto offers an explosive nose of spices, menthol, minerals, smoke and scorched earth followed by waves of sweet fruit that coat the palate in a potent mix of finesse and sheer power, with fine tannins, and a lingering balsamic note on the finish. This complex, multi-dimensional wine will require considerable patience and will age gracefully for several decades. Made from the oldest vines at Falletto, the 2001 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is another towering achievement from Bruno Giacosa." (97pts AG, Wine Advocate #167, Oct 2006)
