Paolo Scavino 2014 "Bric del Fiasc" Barolo

Description

"Fragrant and full-bodied, this dazzling red opens with enticing scents of rose petal, blue flower, wild berry and a whiff of camphor. Elegantly structured, the polished, full-bodied palate delivers succulent morello cherry and raspberry compote, while licorice, tobacco and vanilla accents add depth. It's impeccably balanced, with fresh acidity. Without a doubt this is one of the best 2014 Barolos out there. Drink 2022–2034." Wine Enthusiast 97 Points, Cellar Selection 

"This is one of my favorite single-vineyard 2014 Barolos from the Scavino family. Fruit for the 2014 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is sourced from the Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. You might guess this by the wine's trademarked fantasy name "Bric dël Fiasc." The family farms a large swath of the Fiasco vineyard, but this wine is made with fruit from a 2.5-hectare section at the center of the cru. It enjoys southeast exposures with both marl and sandy deposits. This complex mix of Tortonian and Helvetian soils makes for a tight, interwoven patchwork. This helps to develop both elegance and power, and you get both in generous supply with this wine. Enrico Scavino realized he had something special during fermentation, and the wine has continued to develop beautifully since then. It boasts finely textured tannins that contribute to the overall structure and firmness. This is an age-worthy Barolo that reveals depth and determination." Robert Parker 94 Points
