International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Saturated deep red-ruby. Deep, expressive aromas of cherry syrup, road tar, smoke and game. Fat, chewy and loaded with fruit; can't quite match the '98 for flavor development or sheer verve, but this is sweet and lush. Finishes with major, tongue-coating tannins that will require at least a few years of additional bottle aging.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 135

Giacosa's 1997 Barolo Falletto de Serralunga is an exquisite Barolo offering superb notes of tar, earth, truffles, licorice, minerals, and cherry/raspberry fruit. There is plenty of acidity as well as high tannin, but concentrated, chewy flavors. The wine is tight, dense, impressive, and surprisingly structured for a 1997.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Medium ruby-garnet. A bit advanced. Cooked plum, berry and Indian spices follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. Long and caressing. Very beautiful. Very Burgundian.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink now. 1,290 cases made.
