2005 bruno giacosa, barolo, falletto vigna le rocche
Why We're Buying
Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche comes from a single plot in Piedmont. It contains the oldest vines in the commune and is vinified separately from the rest of the estate's wines. The result: a Barolo that shines bright even among other legendary Bruno Giacosa wines.
Displays pure strawberry and raspberry, with notes of rose. Full-bodied, with ultrarefined tannins and a persistent finish. A wine with grace, finesse and wonderful depth.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto is a massive, towering Barolo loaded with tons of rich, primary fruit. The wine remains powerful, dense and muscular with superb length even if it is a smaller-scaled Barolo compared to previous great vintages. That said, when I came back to the wine after it had been in the glass for an hour or so, I found that the wine had grown remarkably. While the 2005 doesn't have the explosive personality of the 2004, it remains an awesome achievement in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035
