2013 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.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The recent evolution of this wine is a bit confusing. After the 2009 Barolo le Rocche del Falletto was released, the wine was not made in 2010 or 2011. The following year, we got the 2012 Barolo Falletto that I scored last year. We now return to the series with the 2013 Barolo Falleto Vigna Le Rocche—which is, of course, the white label wine. The wine shows extremely elegant and fine characteristics with a dry and streamlined approach. Fruit tones on offer are delicate and nuanced. White truffle, balsam herb, violet and licorice are folded within. The wine was a little reticent when I tasted it and it definitely needs more time to flesh out in the bottle.
