International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 117

($150) Good medium red. Exotic aromas of dried fruits, spice cake and nuts. Fat, sweet and full but with lovely floral perfume and vinosity; this, too, offers quintessential Barolo aromatic complexity and solid underlying acid/tannin backbone. A bit more expressive and showy today than the Rocche, but without quite that wine's depth. The full tannins reach the front teeth.

Medium red. The 1999 Barolo Falletto offers an open-knit, perfumed nose, with expressive nuances of flowers and spice and wonderful sense of depth and purity. It hints at greater richness and expansiveness on the palate, with sensations of raspberries, cherries and menthol, outstanding length and a beautiful, clean finish framed by lingering notes of minerality and sweetness. The Barolo Falletto is a delicate, yet structured Barolo that comes across as more feminine when compared to Le Rocche del Falletto and it will likely reach maturity sooner. Although it is currently holding back quite a bit I am confident this is a great Barolo in the making and it is not to be missed. An Azienda Agricola Falletto di Bruno Giacosa bottling.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Delicate, refined and very pretty. Plum, spice and licorice aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a fresh, delicate finish. Goes on and on. All in finesse. 1,200 cases made.

Paired with grilled ribeye steaks, grilled green onions and country fried potatos. Light garnet in color already being consumed by orange hues throughout. Nose really jumps out of the glass, very purfumed with strong floral noted and crushed rose pedals. this wine peaked at 2 hours in the decanter and really started to show meaty forward round fruit and soft well integrated tannins. Very elegant and perfectly balanced wine made in the traditional style of barolo. I do have to question the lifespan of this wine. its drinking beautifully now and at least for the next 5 years. I will open another bottle in a couple years just to make sure. If you own more than one, open one now and enjoy.

Especially impressive for firm but elegant tannins. Rich in raspberry, leather and anise aromas. Refined and balanced w/ abundant flavors of chocolate and tobacco. Big! Enjoy next 3 to 20 years
