International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Medium red. Musky, complex aromas of black raspberry, licorice and lead pencil. Large-scaled but penetrating; tangy raspberry flavors are given great precision by the wine firm spine of acidity. Almost painfully young today. Finishes with explosive, very persistent flavors and firm but thoroughly buffered tannins. A bit dominated by its powerful structure today, but this wine really blossomed with aeration.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 124

The saturated ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barolo Falletto exhibits an extraordinary nose of smoke, earth, white truffles, black fruits, licorice, and floral scents. Extremely massive, with layers of concentration, high tannin, a muscular personality, and a 40+ second finish, this classic, young Barolo will require patience. Why can't I turn my body clock back twenty years?

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Serious Barolo, with sleek yet powerful structure. Aromas of berry, plum and minerals. Full-bodied, with a tannin structure that builds on your palate. Long finish. 510 cases made.

So young, but so promising. I really didn't want to open this, but did so for a 1996 retrospective in the name of science. Didn't show a ton on the palate, but the aromatics were sublime. Textbook Barolo. Leaving my others to slumber.
