International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 105

Very good medium-deep red. Knockout Barolo nose in all its rustic splendor, showing everything from exotic fruits to smoke, game, tobacco, camphor and white truffle. Urgent, penetrating and supersweet, with nearly candied red fruit flavors saturating the palate. A youthfully aggressive wine that really needs a few years to calm down. Finishes with strong but fine tannins and great ripeness.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 137

The fabulous 1998 Barolo Falletto del Serralunga reveals intensity and volume. A dark plum color is accompanied by a classic Nebbiolo perfume of rose water, melted tar, truffles, and cherry jam. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of spice box and cigar smoke also emerge. Full-bodied, dense, and powerfully tannic, yet extremely harmonious.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A bright and fruity red with structure. Plenty of berry and leather on the nose, with just a hint of mineral. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish.

Dark ruby with slightly orange/garnet rim. Red fruit, fog/white-smoke, mountain air, some old leathery quality. Dry but fine tannins. How it changed over the course of its consumption was the real pleasure, though. Fantastic in its final form. Was initially thin and floral, almost feminine with clean, well defined, delicate, fruit. Then, after +2 hours in the decanter, something eerie happened. The wine grew into something utterly villainous and seemed to put on a black cape. It gave us the impression that this villain lived on top of some foggy mountain. This wasn't a decadent wine - it was evil! In a good way. Had a great time.
