Barolo Bric del Fiasc Scavino 94js/91ag 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, James Suckling :"Intense minerality to this red with hints of white pepper and plums. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a persistent finish. Very tight needing three or four years to open. Better in 2019." 3/16. 93 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate:" The 2012 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is a delightful wine with a full and generous personality. Compared to past vintages, this edition shows a soft and round disposition that doesn't place it too far away from the similarly warm 2011 growing season. Dark fruit, spice and balsam herb are well balanced against one another. Although there are many parallels between the two vintages, this wine feels more delineated and sharply defined in terms of mouthfeel and structure...." Issue# 225, 6/16. 91 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous:"The 2012 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is embryonic at this stage. In two tastings so far, the 2012 has comes across as relatively light by this wine's standards, while the site specific signatures that are so typical never seem to develop. It will be interesting to see if the 2012 Bric del Fiasc gains depth in bottle. Today, it is a bit of a mystery." 3/16.
