Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 90-93

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.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

($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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

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.

Surprisingly good. A little strange upon opening and had more leather than spice, but good overall. Really enjoyed. Hit good place for drinking about 2+ hours open!

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo


Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
