Ratings and Tasting Notes:
JS=97 Sweet berries, smoke, cedar and olives on the nose. Floral. Full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and a pretty background and ripe fruit. Flavorful finish. Hints of bitter citrus and smoke, too. Very complex. Powerful for Falletto. Drink after 2026.
WS=94 This is broad and open-knit, offering plum, cherry, eucalyptus, juniper, liquorice, tar and tobacco flavours. Dense tannins add grip as this turns more compact on the finish. The smooth texture and balance bode well for the future. Best from 2025 through 2046.
