Written Notes

My notes started out with the universally accepted .Ooooooooooooo,. plus or minus an o or two. It was very nutty in the nose, in an oily way this time, and was very rich and almost creamy. The palate was enormous, especially the concentration of fruit. The oily texture of the fruit was amazing and really left an impression. The nose got more and more complex, and the wine had great t .n a. The palate was .so f.ing delicious,. I put. Sometimes, less is more when it comes to the pen. It was beefy and oily with traces of toasted brown sugar. Yum

Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva 2004 Big, dark and brooding nose with tobacco, licorice, tar, spices, raw meat, blood, herbs and dark cherries. Really needs plenty of time to open up. Full bodied but closed palate with sweet, dark fruit, bramble, plums, ripe strawberries, dried figs and coffee. Concentrated with impressive structure and fantastic length but today the wine feels a bit four squared and closed. Monumental but needs at least a couple of hours in a decanter or plenty of cellar time. Will be stunning when mature! 2020-2040 96p.
