The 2000 Barolo Rocche di Falletto, from the best vineyards of Giacosa’s own Serralunga d’Alba estate, is a horse of a different color. Equally intense, it is considerably fuller and rounder, fleshier on the mid-palate and finish than the Falletto, and decisively more complex in aroma with all the familiar notes of tar and roses, anisette and wild cherry fruit. Any comparisons with the 1999 version of this wine, however, richer, more nuanced, and more velvety, a Barolo which seems better every time it is tasted, are completely out of place. And to mention this wine in the same breath with the 1996 Barolo Falletto Riserva is a joke. Drink: 2006-2020. Importer: Winebow, Hohokus, NJ; tel. (201) 445-0620
