($200) Moderately saturated medium red. Reticent nose hints at red fruit liqueur and marzipan. Sweet on entry, then quite firm in the middle, with fresh acids giving definition and penetration to this rather inexpressive wine. Today this is less rich and sweet than the Barbaresco Asili, but there's enticing ripeness here and excellent lift on the firmly tannic finish. This really went into a shell in the glass and would appear to need at least five or six years of bottle aging.

The Falletto offers very ripe, sweet red fruit in an accessible style, with good freshness for the vintage. Today this wine is an infant. It shows slightly rough tannins, and the wine will clearly require time to come together.

Shows dried cherry and plum character, with just a hint of rose petal. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Still tight, yet balanced. Needs time to open. 200 cases imported.
