  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

    A monster wine. Loads of very, very ripe fruit, with an almost raisiny character. Full-bodied, with port-like flavors of dried herbs. Long, long finish.

    Deep saturated red, impressive for the year. Vibrant but exotic nose dominated by dark berries and spicy oak. Dense, rich and very concentrated, with sweet flavors of minerals, red fruits, mint and oak. Quite primary and firm for the year, and in need of bottle aging.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    The 1997 is a flashy, opulent Bric del Fiasc, with layers of super-ripe dark fruit, chocolate, tar and alcohol that burst onto the palate in a display of awesome concentration and length. It is a big, weighty Barolo that promises to drink well for at least another decade.

    Great but young.
    Author: Peter B
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.
