The 2008 vintage marked its 30th anniversary and to celebrate the Scavinos produced their first ever Riserva from this plot, where they have only just released. The fruit comes from the oldest part of the vineyard and the wine is aged for two years in a mixture of small barrels and large oak "botti" vats as per the regular bottling but with three years extra ageing in bottle.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo Riserva Bric del Fiasc is a huge, huge wine. Waves of fruit saturate the palate as the Riserva shows off its personality. There is so much intensity that the tannins are at times barely perceptible. Dark red fruit, smoke, incense, spices and crushed rocks burst from the glass as this rich, explosive Barolo shows off its pedigree. The Riserva is pure Bric del Fiasc at its very finest. The 2008 Riserva is still in cask. I can't wait to taste this again. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2033.

Wine SpectatorA broad swath of mulled cherry, licorice, tar and briar aromas and flavors highlights this dense, beefy red. Balanced, showing hints of tar and plenty of muscle. Think of a fireplace and braised lamb or beef. Best from 2018 through 2032. 208 cases made.
