Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche Riserva 2012


Lobenberg: Drückend, Eisen, Jod und Teer, Laub, irgendwie wie eine antike Kathedrale. Hat was Großes, aber fern jeder Moderne. 98-100/100


Suckling über: Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche Riserva

-- Suckling: A rich and decadent Barolo with dark berry, meat and hints of chocolate and spice. Full body, layered and dense with some leather and walnut underlying the ripe fruit. Drink in 2020 but already beautiful. 98/100


Winespectator über: Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche Riserva

-- Winespectator: Piercing scents of truffle, rose water, macerated cherry and medicinal herbs are the hallmarks of this elegant red. Less evolved and harmonious on the palate, with a core of sweet fruit and tightly wound, dense tannins. Stays fresh and long on the extended finish. Best from 2022 through 2043. 97/100


Parker über: Barolo Falletto Vigna Le Rocche Riserva

-- Parker: The 2012 Barolo Riserva Falletto Vigna Le Rocche (red label) was bottled last September and has already eased into a comfortable and promising stage in its very early evolution. Bruna Giacosa tells me that this wine will be made in 2014 and 2016, so future supplies are plentiful. The jury is out on whether the wine will be produced in 2015, but Bruna tells me it is unlikely (albeit by no means confirmed at this point). Fruit selection was extreme in 2012. This is a warm vintage expression, and the wine is beautifully rich and velvety as a result. That textural richness is what stands out most. The primary fruit is bold and very well defined. There is a point of dark cherry ripeness, but it adds to the generous fiber and softness of the mouthfeel. Of the many beautiful vintages I have tasted of this wine, I suspect the 2012 might be faster in its evolution. 96/100
