($200) Saturated medium red. Musky aromas of sappy cherry liqueur and minerals. Juicy, mineral-driven and gripping, with excellent clarity and thrust to its intense, slightly candied flavors. A very sexy, wonderfully rich and broad Barolo with substantial ripe tannins. The pHs of the Barolos and Barbarescos here are higher today than they were previously, admits Giacosa, but that's a function of warmer years and riper fruit rather than any change in philosophy.

One of FZ's favourite producers who probably knows the Langhe best - very reliable throughout the range. This is his basic Barolo; the others will be released next year.Quite blueish and pale at the rim. Hint of tea and treacle on the nose. Very rich and pruney on the front palate - I seek a little more freshness on the palate. Very claret-like structure but just a bit dusty on the nose. Liquorice flavour is what Ziliani points out to me but says he'd like more assertive tannins. Giacosa is obviously an excellent producer but this wine seems to me to show heat a bit too much. Lively on the palate though… (JR)We had a disappointing bottle a the Decanter tasting. (JH)

Giacosa's 2004 Barolo Falletto is so compelling it will be hard not to drink it in its youth. This gorgeous Barolo reveals a deeply structured frame layered with sweet dark fruit, mint, spice and pine. At once delicate and powerful, it is a beautifully finessed wine that is sure to provide much pleasure. A recent bottle of the 1982 is a testament to the virtues of this great site as interpreted by Bruno Giacosa.

A delicate wine, with intense aromas and some strawberry, citrus fruit and cherry character. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, beautiful finish. Very pretty. All in balance and refinement. 1,200 cases made.
