Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto 2005
The 2005 Barolo Falletto offers up a gorgeous bouquet of red cherries, flowers, spices and menthol. This is a relatively delicate, elegant Barolo Falletto yet it offers gorgeous balance, tons of inner perfume and a long, refined finish. It is one of the overachievers in 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Medium red. Backward yet precise aromas of red cherry, blood orange, dried flowers and spices; there's something almost Chambolle-like about this. Then suave and silky in the mouth, but with superb density and energy to the savory red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes very long and chewy, with a broad dusting of tannins and sneaky length.
I love the juicy fruit character of this wine. Ripe fruit, berries, and dried strawberries. Robust and substantial.
Offers pure strawberry on the nose, with flowers. Full-bodied, with round yet refined tannins and intense, bright fruit. Very long. Always beautiful.
