User Reviews for Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Robert Parker: Paolo Scavino, and more recently his daughter, have always made fabulous Barolos, as evidenced by my previous tasting notes on the 1988s, 1989s, and 1990s. However, in 1993, he began utilizing small barriques (the percentage of new wood varies according to the vineyard), pushing his wines to an even higher level of quality. While the 1993s may not possess the power, intensity, and extract of the great 1990s, qualitatively they are equals. As a postscript, I had the opportunity to taste a mini-vertical of Scavino's Barolo Bric del Fiasc, from the 1990, 1989, 1988, 1985, and 1982 vintages. All of these wines were made in the old style, without aging in small oak casks. The 1988 (rated 91+) was dense, big, and tannic, as well as slightly more rustic and coarse than the 1989 and 1990. It is an impressive, muscular, rich Barolo. (Feb 1997)
