Barolo Bric del Fiasc Scavino 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Wine Spectator: “Dark ruby red. Absolutely gorgeous aromas of crushed berry and fresh flowers, with mushroom and spice undertones. Full-bodied, with chewy, rich tannins and a tangy acidity. This still needs time to come together. Very chewy.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2010. 265 cases made.” 07 Issue Web Only 92-Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 1997 is a flashy, opulent Bric del Fiasc, with layers of super-ripe dark fruit, chocolate, tar and alcohol that burst onto the palate in a display of awesome concentration and length. It is a big, weighty Barolo that promises to drink well for at least another decade."10/06. 92+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Deep saturated red, impressive for the year. Vibrant but exotic nose dominated by dark berries and spicy oak. Dense, rich and very concentrated, with sweet flavors of minerals, red fruits, mint and oak. Quite primary and firm for the year, and in need of bottle aging." 11/00.
