Tasting Notes and Scores

95

Wine Advocate

Wine Advocate June, 2013

The 2009 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto comes from a south-facing parcel with steep slopes for well-draining soils. The vines are approximately 35 years old. There-s a touch of extra ripeness here, even a hint of strawberry, backed by rich berry fruit, cassis and blackberry. The wine shows its most elegant side in the mouth, where the firming, polished tannins give the wine backbone and grace. It-s deliciously silky and extra fine with microscopic precision. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036.

Stephen Tanzer

(white label): Medium red. Sexy, balsamic aromas of plum, mocha, truffle, menthol, nuts and earth. Fat and deep, with complex flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and menthol. Finishes very long, with substantial tongue-clenching tannins. (The problem in 2009 was getting full phenolic ripeness, said Francesco Versio. "In Barbaresco especially, we had to pick under very warm conditions, so the wines can sometimes have less ripeness and body and greener tannins.")

James Suckling

The purity of fruit to this is truly outstanding, with dried strawberries, spices and flowers, including roses. Full body with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful fruit-tannin balance. Super-elegant. This is a joy to taste now but will reward those who are patient. Wait until 2016 and see.

Antonio Galloni

The 2009 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto graces the palate with dried cherries, tobacco, smoke, licorice and savory herbs. Rich, broad and ample at first, the 2009 has good depth but then loses some of its persistence on the finish. Sweet balsamic notes linger on the close. The color is already quite forward, as are flavors, but the 2009 should drink well for a handful of years. The energy, vibrancy and power of the best years is missing. Drink: 2013 - 2019
-Antonio Galloni, Oct 2013
