Giacosa Barolo Falletto 2000

Giacosa Barolo Falletto 750ml 2000       
Sku: 10950

Especially impressive for firm but elegant tannins. This Barolo is rich in raspberry, leather and anise aromas. Very refined and balanced with abundant flavors of chocolate and tobacco. Big! Recommended with beef dishes (especially those with a Barolo based sauce) some game and smoked cheeses.

Tasting notes
Garnet red colour with orange reflections. Ample and complex bouquet with notes recalling truffle and liquorice. In the mouth it feels dry, full and velvety, unfolding a great personality.

2000 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto—Color is a dark burnished ruby. Notes of mint, eucalyptus, flowers and tar appear on the nose. This is a wine of wonderful length and persistence that boasts a rich, soft palate of ripe to over-ripe fruit and a very satisfying finish. A very accessible Barolo. 93 points/drink now-, 12/04 Giacosa’s Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is made from four parcels in the Falletto vineyard where the age of the vines ranges from 30 to 45 years. This was a great opportunity to taste the 2000 and 2001 side by side. In particular, the 2001 is without a doubt one of the best wines I have tasted from this extraordinary vintage so far....

Superdecadent and rich, with layers of plums, blackberries, strawberries and raw meat. Then turns floral. Full-bodied, yet fresh and lively, with a silky and caressing texture. This is not about concentration but about subtlety and complexity. Goes on and on. Best after 2008. 1,200 cases made. –JS
