The 2009 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is also a mild-mannered wine, but it seems to have fared the summer heat with a higher degree of success. Pleasing tones of underbrush, wild berry, white truffle and licorice back its dry, firmly polished tannins. The extra class and elegance on display are undeniable. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

Here the Nebbiolo grapes were always the best: consequently in 1978 Enrico convinced his father Paolo to vinify these grapes separately and show for the first time the potential of this site. One of the first grand cru to be made as single vineyard Barolo. Image and identity of Paolo Scavino winery.
In the Fiasco vineyard the Tortonian and Helvetian soils cross each other combining a great finesse and power. Classy and classic expression of Nebbiolo which requires time to develop all its complexity is Bric dël Fiasc®. The texture characterizes this Barolo: earthy imprint, density of fruit, vibrant and refined tannins. The acidity supports the important structure of this Barolo and lifts the nose which is complex, mineral, balsamic. Little red fruits and licorice are typical notes in Bric del Fiasc®.
