Ripe and generous, featuring an array of dark fruits, distinctive wild herbs, crushed rock and sweet spice notes with a distinctive smoky character, typical of this terroir. The fruit expands in the glass enhancing the complexity of this truly blessed site. The expansive palate is dense and round, still quite closed but the effortless freshness of the vintage provides length and true depth. The 2019 is comparable to the legendary 2016, but it needs time to be enjoyed at its prime. It will provide true joy for those who have the patience to wait. 

Drink from 2025 to 2060.

Purchased in 1980, the Falletto estate is comprised of 10.5 hectares (26 acres) in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba. Considered by Bruno Giacosa as the best area for producing elegant and long-lived Barolos, the Falletto vineyard is southwest facing on steep slopes of calcareaous clay soils in an amphitheater shape. The estate features a single plot known as Vigna Le Rocche, which contains the oldest vines and produces wines that are vinified and bottled separately from the rest of the estate. The Falletto wines are austere, elegant and complex on the nose, with excellent structure and suave tannins.
