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

    An intense red, saturated with blackberry, raspberry, rose and tobacco flavors, without being heavy or extracted. Pure and harmonious, with its structure buried until the lingering finish. Best from 2014 through 2027.

    The 2008 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a big, serious wine endowed with layers of black fruit, iron, smoke, licorice and tar. Some of the brighter, higher-toned aromas that are often present in this vineyard are missing in 2008. Instead readers will find a big, full-bodied Barolo graced with exceptional overall balance and tons of energy. The energy and focus of the virile finish is something to behold. The Bricco Fiasco was aged in French oak barrels, 20% new. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2028.

    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.
