Tasting Note:

An incredibly open Bric del Fiasc that shows a gentler touch than usual without sacrificing complexity in the slightest. A stunningly beautiful example, offering bramble, cherry and blueberry fruit notes of mineral stone and tea leaf. Powerful but pliable, less rigid than this usually is in its youth, sweet fresh and crunchy. Glorious. Bric dël Fiasc is Piedmontese dialect for Bricco Fiasco, the top of the Fiasco vineyard. Situated in Castiglione Falleto, this is one of the great Crus of the region that makes powerful but classy, age worthy wines. It was the first single vineyard bottling Scavino released starting from the 1978 vintage.
