Giacosa’s 2000 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is very representative of the vintage. Already showing a somewhat advancing color, it offers a beautiful nose redolent of spices, flowers, menthol and minerals followed by layers of finessed, super-ripe fruit that unfold onto the palate with plenty of style and length. Today it comes across as a very delicate, almost feminine version of itself, and it lacks the power and thrust of such great vintages as 1999 and 2001 as well as the promising 2003 and 2004 versions. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020. Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate # 167.
