Good deep red. Aromatic nose combines floral, tobacco and smoky elements. Sweet red fruit and floral flavors framed and lifted by harmonious acidity. An ample Barolo with clarity and class, not to mention superb balance. Finishes with perfectly buffered tannins and excellent persistence.

The estate's 2004 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is another awesome wine. Initially linear on entry, it explodes on the palate with a compelling array of dark fruit, smoke, tar, licorice, new leather, plums and baking spices. Although Bric del Fiasc is typically a wine that relies on power, the 2004 is notably refined and elegant, with sweet silky tannins that support the fruit from start to finish. Simply put, this is a remarkable wine from Enrico Scavino. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

The estate's 2001 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is a massive and strapping Barolo with an exciting nose of sweet ripe fruit, licorice, tar and mint. This deeply colored, masculine, full-bodied Barolo is packed with layers of dense backward dark fruit, prune, plum and macerated cherry flavors, with a distinctly mentholated note that gives it a sense of freshness and balance. It finishes with huge tannins which suggest patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

Scavino's 6.5-acre Nebbiolo vineyard Bric dël Fiasc is located near the town of Castiglione Falletto, one of the key communes in Barolo. First made in 1978, it's the flagship wine of the family winery and in great vintages rarely misses a classic rating, enhancing Castiglione's reputation for producing wines of great complexity, concentration and aging power.

A monster wine. Loads of very, very ripe fruit, with an almost raisiny character. Full-bodied, with Port-like flavors of dried herbs. Long, long finish. Best after 2007.

A dramatic, provocative effort is the 1998 Barolo Bric del Fiasc. It possesses awesome levels of concentration, considerable power, immense body, and a fabulously pure, concentrated style. With impressive quantities of black fruits, licorice, minerals, asphalt, earth, and truffles, this Barolo is notable for its purity, high extract levels, and seamlessness. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016.

Classic, well-crafted red. Vivid aromas of crushed berry, mineral and flowers. Full-bodied, with round tannins that are covered with ripe fruit. Long finish of fruit and fresh herbs. Best after 2007.
