    The 2004 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is simply as profound as wine can be. Period. Strikingly layered, perfumed and sensual to the core, the 2004 has it all. Next to the straight Falletto, the Rocche is more refined but also quite a bit more backward as well. Mint, rose petal and melted road tar grace the exquisite finish. The level of intensity here is simply mind-blowing. At ten years of age, the 2004 Rocche is a youngster, but it is clearly a wine of divine inspiration. For readers who look at the numbers, the score is the only possible score.

    Bruno Giacosa

    One of the true greats of the winemaking world, Bruno is the third generation to produce wine at this family estate founded in 1871. The 20 ha domaine comprisies 5.5 ha of Barbaresco Asili and 14.5ha Barolo Falletto di Serralunga. Driven by a passion for the vines and their terroir Bruno is unstinting in his search for quality, declassifying 4 vintages since 1991. His general approach is that fruit quality comes first, in the cellar his methods are largely traditional whilst bowing to some of the more beneficial aspects of modern technology. The wines are fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks and aged in large oak "botti" for between 1 - 4 years depending on the wine.
