Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc 2004
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.
Big, big, big! Plums, licorice, dark fruits, the wine is very muscular on the palate! Full bodied, yet super elegant, the acidity & minerality gives this wine a superb texture. Great length with a superb lingering finish! QC (htttp://www.questionofwine.blogspot.com)
External Reviews for Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc
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.
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.
This wonderful, modern-style, full-bodied '95 Barolo packs in layers of mocha, vanilla, cigar box and red fruit notes. Shows ripe flavors and tannins and a long, impressive finish. Drink now through 2008.
The 1995 Barolo Bris de Fiasc is backward, with scents of smoke, tar, soy, jammy black cherry and blackberry fruit, and pain grillé. Full-bodied, expansive, soft, and seductive, with 13.5% alcohol and moderate tannin in the finish, it should be drunk over the next 10-12 years.
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.
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.
