Showing well but could use another 5-10 years in the bottle. Structured and pretty.

Outstanding wine. Elegant, refined and delicious. Savory, sappy red fruits. Very long finish.

(Tasted at La Festa del Barolo, Del Posto NY)
A very beautiful showing of a 2000 Giacosa wine, a vintage, that according to him - and for his wines - was fabulous. I feel this wine right in the middle of its drinking window, where the primary and first mature aromas meet. Dark red fruit, juicy cherries, fruitcake, sweet exotic spices & lingering noble tannins. I recommend to drink the 2000 "Falletto" before the 1996 or 1999, and of course 2001. A beautiful wine today.

Opened in memory of Bruno Giacosa. This is a gorgeous accessible Barolo from the master. Sappy red fruits, lip smacking acidity and mostly resolved tannins. Rest In Peace, Bruno.
