External Reviews for Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric Dël Fiasc
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.
The Scavino style is evident in the Bric del Fiasc: a combination of richness, power and backbone. Flavors of black plums and coffee, with a long tight finish.
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.
Dark in color, with gorgeous aromas of blackberry, black licorice and blueberry. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long finish. A bit tight, but pretty and balanced. Very long and cerebral. Best after 2012.
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.
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.
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 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.
