Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc 2000
Wine SpectatorVery, very ripe fruit, with strawberries and plums galore. Turns to Indian spices and cedar. Full-bodied, with an exquisite palate of utlraripe tannins that turn to velvet. Long, long finish. Cashmere. Great from barrel, great from bottle. This is the best Bric dïl Fiasc ever. Best after 2010. 875 cases made. (JS)
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Barolo Bric del Fiasc, powerful and penetrating in aroma with expansive sensations of tar, truffles, and anisette, is dense, burly, and concentrated on the palate, intense on the close, but less sweet and round than unusual. It is built to last, however, and will still be drinking well in 2018.
