Dark ruby-red color. Masses of strawberry on the nose, with hints of Indian spices and light vanilla. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long and caressing mouthfeel. Strawberry and cream. Very harmonious and refined. (JS, Web Only-2007)
Bruno Giacosa's 1997 Barolo Rocche de Falletto emerges from four blocks of his Falletto vineyard with a southeastern exposure. This amazing, deep plum/garnet-colored offering possesses huge body as well as a sweet, sexy, fleshy mid-palate and finish. Classic aromas of rose petals, melted tar, and cherry liqueur not only soar aromatically, but saturate the palate and coat the taster's teeth. Profoundly complex and multilayered, with an exquisite texture and overall harmony, for a Giacosa Barolo it is uncommonly precocious, making me think it will provide profound drinking in 2-3 years, and last for three decades.

Amber-tinged dark red. Woodsy aromas of brown spices, dried flowers and underbrush, are lifted by fresher hints of violet, red cherry and marzipan. Sweet, slightly high-toned red cherry and raspberry syrup flavors are complicated by minty and mineral notes, which give the wine needed definition and lift. Finishes long and smooth, with substantial tannins
