Good deep red. Deep but bright aromas of cherry syrup, spices and dried rose; hint of surmaturite Very tightly wound and less obviously sweet today than the Bric del Fiasc; rather dominated by its firm acids and tannins. But sharply delineated, spicy and very long on the firmly tannic finish. This and the Rocche will not approach their peaks for a good seven or eight 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.
