Impressive for its firm but elegant tannins, this Barolo is rich in raspberry, leather, and anise aromas. Extremely refined and balanced with abundant flavors of chocolate and tobacco, this full-bodied and massive Barolo is recommended with meat dishes (especially those with a Barolo based sauce), game, and smoked cheeses.

Wine Advocate2003 Barolo Falletto-The Falletto offers very ripe, sweet red fruit in an accessible style, with good freshness for the vintage. Today this wine is an infant. It shows slightly rough tannins, and the wine will clearly require time to come together.

Wine SpectatorShows dried cherry and plum character, with just a hint of rose petal. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Still tight, yet balanced. Needs time to open. Best after 2011.
