Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

From the top of this steep and warm hill in Castiglione Falletto, the first Cru vinified separately. Historical Cru produced since 1978. A unique value for the family. Superlative harmony and elegance: the vines age, 65 years on average, gives indescribable aspects. Enveloping and never-ending flowers and fruits. Bricco Fiasco ® shows perfectly the radiant personality of Castiglione. Extremely perfumed, floral, with a core of red fruit. Rich, warm, intensely fresh. Ripe tannins.

Spicy and aromatic on the nose. The palate is muscular, yet not overwhelming. Superb acidity and silky tannins. This wine will last for a long time! QC http://www.questionofwine.com

    The estate's 2007 Barolo Bricco Fiasco shows the radiant personality of the vintage while maintaining considerable freshness. Fiasco is a vineyard that typically presents firm tannins, but in 2007 the warmth of the year has given the wine an extra di... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

    A fruity red, with some cedar, new wood and ripe fruit character. Medium body, with velvety tannins and a clean finish. I like the modern style to this. I think it will come together for drinking quickly. Decant and pour. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2006 Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 750ml

    The estate’s 2005 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a gorgeous, muscular wine made in the sinewy style that is the hallmark of this vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. Ripe fruit, menthol, spices and flowers emerge as this structured, powerful Barolo opens up in the glass. There is a ton of inner sweetness here that just needs a few more years in bottle to show the full breadth of the wine’s sheer beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2023.

    Offers raisin, coffee and dried flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins that are velvety and round. Impressive and powerful, with lots of new wood. So velvety. Best after 2012.

    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.

    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 here as well. Drink: 2005andndash;2016.
