($320) Good medium red. Knockout nose shows great precision to the clean aromas of raspberry, wild strawberry, minerals and rose petal; this struck me as quite Burgundian. Then minerally and austere in the mouth, showing great intensity and floral perfume but no impression of thickness or weight. Downright Musigny-like, with superb energy from the limestone soil. Perhaps best of all on the gripping, rising, extremely long finish, which features a powerful tannic spine and exudes a compelling floral perfume. Destined to be long-lived, and a classic.

The 2001 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is unbelievably reticent, which is hardly surprising considering how massive the wine was when it was relased. Readers will have to be especially patient here. The 2001 is best forgotten about for a number of years.

This is a beautiful, seductive wine with power yet great finesse. It's full-bodied, with a massive silky mouthfeel and lovely raspberry and strawberry character. It's very, very long. All in harmony. Giacosa is a master. Not the 100-point 2000, but stupendous just the same. 1,200 cases made.
