Lot #405. Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 98 AG.
"The 2001 vintage in Piedmont has long been a favorite of mine. Bruno Giacosa’s 2001 Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto is explosive and decadently rich from the very first taste. The 2001 is arguably the last truly classic vintage for the Rocche Red Label. To be sure, the 2004, 2005 and 2007 are all compelling, but the 2001 has more in common stylistically with vintages like 1996 and 1999. Dense, perfumed and wonderfully intense, the 2001 is phenomenally great. Wow." Vinous, Mar 2018
Provenance: The Moon River Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label, #3457.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $425
