Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc Closeout Over Off! Nebbiolo Italy 2003
The Bric del Fiasc is noticeably deeper and richer, with notes of sweet dark fruit, tar and scorched earth. Made in a big, bold style, this is a powerhouse of a wine that has enough fruit to balance the tannins, although it is not for the faint of heart. As opposed to Cannubi which has loosely packed, sandy soils, at Bric del Fiasc the soils are more compact and thus retain water better, which helps give this wine a little more freshness.
A special treat for me to taste this and it didn't disappoint. I thought it was well balanced and complex as I could truly smell and taste the sensations of ripe blackberries, almost withering rose petals, and a bit of tar. A fresh and flavorful barolo!
