Full red-ruby. Bright, fruit-driven aromas of spiced cherry, minerals and licorice; sweet yet utterly fresh and vibrant. Extremely intensely flavored and brilliantly delineated, with a floral note of dried rose adding nuance. Perfectly integrated acids carry the flavors through a very long, ripely tannic finish. Wonderfully aromatic already, but structured to age.

Scavino's 1996 Bric del Fiasc, tasted from magnum, is one of the truly great versions of this wine. It offers captivating notes of tar, licorice and menthol along with a tightly wound core of vibrant dark fruit on a structured, deeply expressive frame of notable length. Though starting to show some tertiary nuances, this Barolo will be even better in a few years.

About This Producer


Established in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto, one of the historic Langhe townships, this estate is now entering its third generation of Barolo production. With a historic connection to the land at the forefront of the winemaking philosophy, this estate creates exceptional Barolos, Barberas, and Dolcettos. The Bric del Fiasc Barolo is the hallmark of the family's production, from a vineyard that always produced the best Nebbiolo fruit. In 1978, this fruit was vinified on its own for the first time and it has remained a special bottling ever since.
