Barolo Bric del Fiasc Scavino Premier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"If a wine can truly be perfect, this is it. Displaying power, grace, depth and complexity, this Barolo delivers sublime Nebbiolo sensations including rose, underbrush, red cherry, leather, licorice, baking spices, clove, white pepper and balsamic notes. The intense flavors are balanced by velvety tannins and fantastic energy...100" WE 10/1/2014 "Dark red fruit, iron, smoke, incense and orange peel are some of the many notes that flesh out in the 2010 Barolo Bric del Fiasc. A deep, fleshy Barolo, the Bric del Fiasc is incredibly polished and refined, with perhaps a bit less power than previous vintages, but more in the way of finesse. At this stage, the Bric del Fiasc comes across as not fully formed. It will be interesting to see what the next year brings...95" AG 01/14

Dark red fruit iron smoke incense and orange peel are some of the many notes that flesh out in the 2010 Barolo Bric del Fiasc. A deep fleshy Barolo the Bric del Fiasc is incredibly polished and refined with perhaps a bit less power than previous vintages but more in the way of finesse. At this stage the Bric del Fiasc comes across as not fully formed. It will be interesting to see what the next year brings. Antonio Galloni.

Good full red. Knockout ineffable nose combines red berries, smoke, pepper and herbs. Pure silk on entry, then rather compact and closed in the middle despite its serious density and underlying richness. Most impressive today on the savory, echoing back end, where the tannins are buffered by red fruits and smoke. This wonderfully supple, full, youthfully medicinal wine needs time in bottle to express itself.

Fabulous aromas of black fruits and shitake mushrooms with hints of bark. Full body with wonderful firm tannins that are polished and refined. Needs at least three or four years of bottle age. James Suckling.

Rich and brooding, this red features black cherry, raspberry, tar, leather and licorice flavors. Dense and complex, with a detailed matrix holding the flavors together. This needs time to integrate the dusty tannins, but shows excellent potential from the balance and length. Best from 2018 through 2036.
