Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2010
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

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.

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.
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 here as well. Drink: 2005andndash;2016.
