    Rating: 91-94 - As reviewed by Piedmont Report in Issue 6 , January 2006 The Le Rocche del Falletto, from the oldest and best-exposed plants in the vineyard, is more pronounced in its mineral, spice and balsamic notes, with plenty of super-ripe red fruit. It is bigger, deeper and more complex than the Falletto. The older age of the vines here gives broader yet finer tannins.

    Good medium red. Reticent, brooding nose suggests menthol and mocha. In a distinctly closed and tougher style, with fairly vibrant currant, mocha and menthol flavors currently cut off by firm tannins. This makes the 2003 Asili appear lush and open by comparison. But this rather classically styled Barolo is still a baby.
