bruno giacosa falletto barolo le rocche del falletto riserva 2014 750ml
2014 was a classic year regarding the weather and climatically balanced without any extreme heat or rain.Worthy of taking note is the temperature range during the summer between daytime highs and nighttime lows, which favored a good accumulation of aromatic notes in the Nebbiolo variety. The wines produced in this vintage are very fine and elegant, with refined fruit aromas and pronounced structure.
Red garnet in color. Intense, elegant, and complex nose with red fruit, floral, and spice notes. The palate presents good freshness, excellent structure, and fine, velvety tannins..
96 points - James Suckling
"Impressive fresh leather-clad red cherries with a subtle earthiness in the background. Quite pure. Floral and aromatic. The palate has a very elegant yet powerful core of blueberries and cherries. A smooth release of fruit sweetness into the fresh and vibrant finish. Elegant and classic. More open than normal. Impressive now but better from 2022."
95 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Simply put, this is a beautiful wine that unfolds slowly with amazing intensity and complexity, delivering delicate notes of violets and candied orange peel that cede softly to darker tones of licorice, dried blackberry and savory spice. Give the wine the time it needs to open in the glass. This vintage flaunts its most elegant side, with fine tannins and soft fruity fiber that remains everlasting and pure. This estate is known for taking its biggest chances in the so-called off vintages. Betting on 2014 has turned out to be a brilliantly contemplated move."

"My pals, who casually know me, think that my I spend most of my dining time with Cabernet Sauvignon. What they don't know-like many of my peers-I often reach for the Nebbiolo, which can often reach almost unobtainable heights of greatness. The 2014 Bruno Giacosa Falletto Barolo is an outstanding wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is omnipotent in so many ways, yet stays refined and classic. Its aromas and flavors reveal a multitude of nuances, including black fruits, leather, earth, and savory spices. Pair it with a spit-roasted leg of lamb accented with rosemary and garlic."
