Tasting Note:

Austere and brooding initially, but with a little air and encouragement fresh floral and wild strawberry notes appear above the surlier backdrop of dark fruit, spice and scorched earth notes. The wine is dense-packed and monumental, but there are many layers of complex fruits and minerals lying beneath. Most impressive but this will need time. 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.
