Tasting Note:

Suave modern and glossy. Aromatic fruit supported brilliantly by perfectly fused, creamy oak. More open and less compact than Cannubi. Full bodied sweet cherry, mocha and strawberry characteristics. Primary but with lots of layers and vigour. Exuberant and flashy with a well-matched oak influence and structure. There is plenty to hang your hat on here! 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 made in 1978.
