Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2000

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

In 1943, the Scavinos split the estate that had been in the family since 1920. Half became Azelia, which is today run by Luigi Scavino, namesake and grandson of the original owner. The estate comprises 27 acres in the heart of Barolo country- the communes of Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga. The 6.5-acre Bricco Fiasco parcel is south-facing, with vines 20 and 60 years old. Luigi makes this red in rotofermentors, maturing it for two years in barriques, followed by six months in large oak casks.

The 2000 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a sizeable step up in quality than the regular bottling, oakier and with more perceptible sensations of vanilla on the nose but fuller and rounder in flavor, though some additional varietal character would be welcome ...

The nose of this wine evokes crushed Nebbiolo with hints of fresh flowers and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with incredibly round, soft tannins. Long, velvety finish. Voluptuous. Azelia has come into its own. Serve this to the nonbelievers. Best after 2008.
