Barolo Bric del Fiasc Scavino 94js/93 Ag 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, James Suckling: A tight and chewy wine with polished tannins. Full and dense with wonderful fruit and a mineral, stone character. Racy wine. Better in 2017." 3/15. 93+ Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The flagship 2011 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is the wine that seems to have suffered the most from its recent bottling. The signature mineral/ferrous notes are present, but the wine hasn't fully come together in bottle. At this stage, the 2011 is quite reticent, especially compared to how it showed from tank prior to bottling, but I am not at all concerned given the wine's brilliant track record and this site's history for producing tannic, ageworthy Barolos. Today, though, there is not a lot of vintage 2011 sexiness." 3/15.
