Tasting Note:

Ripe aromatic and enveloping, juicy and persistent with a certain firmness adding definition and structure. As backboned as it is, this is also one of the most attractive and languid wines in the cellar. Less exuberant and a little more sophisticated, even, than recent vintages. There is plenty to hang your hat on here! Bric dël Fiasc is Piedmontese dialect for Bricco Fiasco, the top of the Fiasco vineyard.

It was the first single vineyard bottling Scavino made in 1978.
