Wine AdvocateThe fabulous 1998 Barolo Falletto del Serralunga reveals intensity and volume. A dark plum color is accompanied by a classic Nebbiolo perfume of rose water, melted tar, truffles, and cherry jam. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of spice box and cigar smoke also emerge. Full-bodied, dense, and powerfully tannic, yet extremely harmonious, it will be at its finest between 2008-2030.

Wine SpectatorMore porcini than truffles here, with plum and blackberry aromas that follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins that are wood-coated and powerful. Still mouthpuckering. Big, powerful wine. Give it a little more time. Much better than I remember.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010. 1,450 cases made.

James Suckling, 2008
