Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94-96 points

The saturated ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barolo Falletto exhibits an extraordinary nose of smoke, earth, white truffles, black fruits, licorice, and floral scents. Extremely massive, with layers of concentration, high tannin, a muscular personality, and a 40+ second finish, this classic, young Barolo will require patience. Why can't I turn my body clock back twenty years? Anticipated maturity: 2012-2035.
