Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva Falletto Vigna Le Rocche 2011

The 2011 Rocche Riserva was released in February 2017.

Note that starting in 2011, due to changes in Italian law, the label says Falletto Vigna Le Rocche instead of Le Rocche del Falletto (without the village name, Serralunga d'Alba). This is because "Falletto" is the official vineyard name (called a "Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive" (MGA) in the law), while "Le Rocche" is an officially recognized vineyard within that MGA (called a "Vriv" in the law).

Since 2007, the label no longer gives the individual bottle number (but still gives the total number of bottles made). This is all part of the change in label laws in Piedmont.
