Tasting Note:

Spicier and bigger than the other Scavino Crus, less compact than usual and more expansive and expressive than the Cannubi. Good clear but sweet fruit flavours, notes of red berry, cherry and wild strawberry with strong underlying earthy, dark and spicy characteristics that form the wine's core. This has everything, tannic spine, sweet and savoury notes, depth and high toned fruit. There is a certain richness but no evidence of too much heat, in fact there is an appetising freshness to this. Bric dël Fiasc is Piedmontese dialect for Bricco Fiasco, the top of the Fiasco vineyard. Situated at 280 metres above sea level 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.
