External Reviews for Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc
Intense aromas of licorice, berries and tobacco with just a hint of citrus. Full-bodied, with an excellent intensity of fruit and a long, silky finish. Juicy and rich. Always classic in a top year. Best after 2008.
The 2000 Barolo Bric del Fiasc, powerful and penetrating in aroma with expansive sensations of tar, truffles, and anisette, is dense, burly, and concentrated on the palate, intense on the close, but less sweet and round than unusual. It is built to last, however, and will still be drinking well in 2018.
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.
Good full red. Complex, lively nose melds cassis, blackberry, violet, minerals and spicy oak. Silky and suave on entry, then strong and dense in the middle, with flavors of cassis, dark chocolate and menthol. Very primary Barolo with excellent lift. Finishes very long, with chewy tannins and a light touch. This may well need seven or eight years to fully express itself.
Very, very ripe fruit, with strawberries and plums galore. Turns to Indian spices and cedar. Full-bodied, with an exquisite palate of utlraripe tannins that turn to velvet. Long, long finish. Cashmere. Great from barrel, great from bottle. This is the best Bric dël Fiasc ever. Best after 2010.
The estateandrsquo;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: 2014andndash;2022.
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.
The modern history of the Scavino family starts with this vineyard, within the Fiasco cru. Here the Nebbiolo grapes were always the best: consequently in 1978 young Enrico convinced his father Paolo to vinify these grapes separately. In this way the first, and still most loved cru, was established.
