Tasting Notes

The 2007 is an incredibly refined and harmonious wine. The aromas are multi-layered and enveloping with notes of sweet ripe red berries, cassis and dried summer fruits intermingled with herbs and balsamic notes. Magnificent, complex flavours with ripe,sweet fruits and a mineral character on the finish are supported by structured but very fine tannins. Although a powerful wine, the overall impression is one of incredible elegance and sophistication. This is a serious Sassicaia which needs ten or more years before drinking but will continue to develop for twenty years or more.

Reviews & Scores

This is classy on the nose with subtle currant, sweet tobacco, cigar box and dried flowers. Cassis too. Full body, with refined tannins and a solid core of fruit. Polished and very pretty. Long and delicious already. But you have to wait on this. It has so much more to give. Try after 2015.

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...
