Wine tasting notes

One of the great Castiglione vineyards, the same vineyard as Scavino’s Bric dël Fiasc but named using the standard Italian dialect as opposed to that of Piedmont. Aged in large Slavonian oak “botti” and barriques with 20-25% new oak. Impressive, explosive and grippy sweet red fruits, spice and chocolate flavours, juicy, structured and powerful but not at all overpowering; in fact, the lasting impression is of intense fragrant, sweet fruits and spices. Excellent.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2008) - 94 pts

The 2008 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a big, serious wine endowed with layers of black fruit, iron, smoke, licorice and tar. Some of the brighter, higher-toned aromas that are often present in this vineyard are missing in 2008. Instead readers will find a big, full-bodied Barolo graced with exceptional overall balance and tons of energy. The energy and focus of the virile finish is something to behold. The Bricco Fiasco was aged in French oak barrels, 20% new.”

Perfumed leafy Nebbiolo fruit. Elegant, juicy palate structured by fine tannins. Quite fine and unostentatious. (WS


Wine Spectator (2008) - 93 pts

An intense red, saturated with blackberry, raspberry, rose and tobacco flavors, without being heavy or extracted. Pure and harmonious, with its structure buried until the lingering finish. Best from 2014 through 2027. 680 cases made.


James Suckling (2008) - 93 pts

A focused red with raspberry and lemon aromas and flavors and a light salty undertone. Medium to full body, with well-integrated tannins and a light tar and fruit aftertaste. Better in 2014.
