    I am lost for words with this wine. Perfumed and so elegant with the most exquisite aromas of roses, plums and earth. Yet always subtle and complex. Full body and ultra fine, firm tannins. Fantastic finish that lasts for minutes. Try in 2026.

    Le Rocche is a selection from the highest parcels in Falletto in Serralunga, which helps to explain its great finesse. The raspberry and redcurrant nose shows great purity of fruit, poise and stylishness. The palate is equally elegant, with a lean attack, polished tannins and a silky, intense texture. There's ample tannic grip but it's not aggressive and there are none of the rough edges often apparent in Serralunga. Balanced and very long.

    It takes a few seconds to access the core of fruit in this taut, sinewy red, but there is a beam of pure cherry, accented by rose, wild juniper, thyme and licorice flavors. This turns elegant and supple in the end, with terrific complexity, harmony and minerally length. Best from 2023 through 2046.

    Bottled in July of last year, the 2015 Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche is a daring and absolutely profound expression of Nebbiolo with the depth, thickness and volume you can expect from a warm vintage such as this. This wine is a veritable bomb of aromatic intensity with thick layers of dark fruit, spice and crushed stone that all vie for your attention in equal measure. The mouthfeel is characterized by thick fiber and lasting succulence, all capped with fresh acidity and a firm tannic backbone. This Barolo is classic Giacosa.
