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.
Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2008 Barolo Falletto initially comes across as sweet, layered and pretty. Dark plums, cherries, flowers, menthol and spices take shape in the glass. This is a decidedly understated vintage for the Barolo Falletto. The wines mid-weight structure suggests it will be at its finest over the next handful of years. Overall the 2008 Falletto is diluted and fleeting. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.  (Apr 2012)

Wine Spectator 96 points - Warm and chewy, this red exhibits cedar, sandalwood, tobacco and leather accents enhancing the core of cherry and raspberry. As this plays out on the palate, the wine turns more supple and vibrant, building to the long, expansive finish. Best from 2016 through 2035. From Italy.—B.S. (Jan 2 2013)

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.
Producer
The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d’Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label.
