"Red berry, blue flower, crushed herb and exotic spice aromas unfold in the glass. Elegant, structured and delicious, the full-bodied palate delivers red cherry and licorice, chopped mint alongside bright acidity and firm, refined tannins. It's impeccably balanced and will age gloriously. Drink 2021"
Wine Spectator 95
"Pure and elegant, offering rose, cherry, strawberry, licorice and tobacco flavors. Vibrant and intense, with a long, grippy finish. A stony note peeks through on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 715 cases made. –BS"
"From Castiglione Falletto (but close to La Morra), the 2013 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc sees fruit sourced from a family-owned parcel located 270 meters above sea level with marl limestone soils on one side. The other side of the hilltop is characterized by sandy soils that you tend to see in this township. This is a darkly saturated and rich expression of Nebbiolo with bright aromas of dark cherry, dried blackberry, spice, leather and toasted hazelnut. The wine stands out for the singular elegance it possesses, especially in terms of mouthfeel. The finish is still youthful and succulent, so think long-term cellar aging."

"The 2013 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is one of the most complete and satisfying wines in the range. Exquisitely layered and precise, the Bric del Fiasc is also unusually nuanced in this vintage. Iron, smoke, rose petal, mint and crushed flowers give the wine its distinctive aromatic signatures. The driving Bric del Fiasc tannins are present, and yet the 2013 is laid back and understated - as all the 2013s Barolos are - with less of its customary explosiveness and brutish power. I can't wait to see how it ages. -- Antonio Galloni"
James Suckling 95
"Polished and tight with blueberries, plums and light chocolate. Medium to full body, fine and juicy tannins and a fresh finish. Drink in 2018. Publish Date: Tuesday, July 11, 2017"
Wine & Spirits 94
"Scents of lavender and violet lead into flavors of strawberry and raspberry wrapped in a silky texture. Fine-grained tannins lend firmness without impeding the wine’s juicy, saturated fruit flavors, while notes of tar and licorice lend them ballast."
This cru is the image and identity of the Paolo Scavino winery. Their very first single vineyard Barolo made for first time in 1978, in Castiglione Falletto from the Fiasco cru. Theirs since 1921. Balance of elegance and power. Density of fruit, vibrant and refined tannins in the texture. 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
