Barolo Faletto Vigna Le Rocche 2015
100 points, “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, ultra-fine and firm tannins. Upgraded. Fantastic finish that lasts for minutes.” – James Suckling
2015 was “an exceptional vintage” (Jancis Robinson) in Piedmont, which ratchets up the demand for top Barolo like this massively. Famed for his ability to select the finest fruit, the bespectacled Bruno Giacosa was a sad loss to the fine wine world when he passed away in January 2018, making wines like this even more sought-after. Bottled from the estate’s vineyards, Vigna Le Rocche is now looked after by Bruno’s daughter Bruna, and the wine continues its incredible run of form.
The Falletto vineyard is iconic in Langhe. This natural amphitheatre protects the low-yielding vines, creating an optimum microclimate. The 2015 Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche is a profound Nebbiolo, full of depth, warmth and aromatics. Unbelievably complex and concentrated, this is the kind of wine that is a joy on its own but also pairs stunningly with the flavours of truffles, wild mushrooms and game. Expect dark fruit, spice plum crumble, dried flowers, and crushed rocks. As Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate puts it: “This Barolo is classic Giacosa.”
