Lot #404. Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 98+ ST.
"Deep, saturated ruby-red. Explosive nose offers the full range of Barolo perfume: black cherry, black raspberry, rose petal, marzipan, licorice, menthol, leather, minerals. A wine of monumental scale but utterly suave and clear as a bell thanks to bracing balancing acids and superb tannic backbone. Great depth and vinosity; really expands in the glass and on the palate. The fruit explodes on the endless, ripely tannic finish. The full Barolo experience in 3-D and technicolor." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2000
Provenance: The Moon River Cellar
Notes: Lightly scuffed label, #1727.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $750
