Tasting Notes

The 2008 Falletto is an incredibly attractive and refined Barolo with a bouquet of red berry fruits and perfumed, almost sensuous floral characters and hints of white truffles. There is excellent balance, depth and definition on the palate supported by firm but very elegant tannins. Savoury red cherry and cassis notes and a refined mineral character on the finish give great elegance and length.

Reviews & Scores

(white label): Medium reddish-amber. Very spicy aromas of red berries, cherry, rose petal and menthol, plus a whiff of darker blueberry. Dense, sweet and bright, with bright acidity and a strong floral element providing left. Smooth in the middle, with more mid-palate stuffing to support its serious tongue-dusting tannins than the Asili. Built for a slow and graceful evolution in bottle.

The nose opens with warm earthy tones. Appealing spice sits alongside dried peel notes and hightoned fruit over a hint of leather The fruit is forward, and a touch juicier than in the past, underpinned by the same spicy notes found on the nose. A keen freshness knits everything together and the balance of this wine is impeccable. Drink from...
