1998 Bruno Giacosa "Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba" Barolo

SKU #1001649 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The fabulous 1998 Barolo Falletto del Serralunga reveals intensity and volume. A dark plum color is accompanied by a classic Nebbiolo perfume of rose water, melted tar, truffles, and cherry jam. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of spice box and cigar smoke also emerge. Full-bodied, dense, and powerfully tannic, yet extremely harmonious, it will be at its finest between 2008-2030. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2001)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very good medium-deep red. Knockout Barolo nose in all its rustic splendor, showing everything from exotic fruits to smoke, game, tobacco, camphor and white truffle. Urgent, penetrating and supersweet, with nearly candied red fruit flavors saturating the palate. A youthfully aggressive wine that really needs a few years to calm down. Finishes with strong but fine tannins and great ripeness. (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2002)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark More porcini than truffles here, with plum and blackberry aromas that follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins that are wood-coated and powerful. Still mouthpuckering. Big, powerful wine. Give it a little more time. Much better than I remember. (JS) Inner quote mark
