Barolo Bricco Fiasco Azelia 93js 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

'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...94"WA 04/2012 "A focused red with raspberry and lemon aromas and flavors and a light salty undertone. Medium to full body, with well-integrated tannins and a light tar and fruit aftertaste. Better in 2014...93" JamesSuckling.com 7/12 "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...93" WS 11/12
