Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2015
|Italy, Piedmont, Barolo
The 2015 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is made with fruit from 80-year-old vines that were planted by Luigi Scavino's grandfather. This vineyard in Castiglione Falletto has more sand in the soil compared to Serralunga d'Alba, resulting in floral and fruity aromas. I love the deep inner intensity of this wine plus the pretty fruity contours that give it so much lift and buoyancy. The wine is immediately bright and forthcoming. Dusty mineral tones with integrated tannins appear on the long finish. The wine spends 24 months in mostly neutral barrique. Some 5,800 bottles were made.
