Superlative harmony and elegance: the vines age, 85 years on average, gives indescribable aspects. Enveloping and never-ending flowers and fruits. Bricco Fiasco shows perfectly the radiant personality of Castiglione Falletto. Extremely perfumed, floral, with a core of red fruit. Rich, warm, intensely fresh.

Bricco Fiasco is a single cru, vinified by itself since 1978, today from vines of 85 years old. The wine, after long maceration and ageing in botti grandi, opens up to smoky woodland notes, with citrus leaf, bark, wild strawberry and rose water delicacy. Full of sucrosity on the palate, the attack is youthful, with firm acidity and grainy, very elegant tannins. Structure and concentration are perfectly woven and poised, giving to this cru terrific balance which will count for ageing. Drinking Window: 2023 - 2050 ... More details

Bricco Fiasco is a proprietary name for a vineyard in Castiglione Falletto with 85 year old vines. Luigi Scavino says, "These vines represent a unique heritage for our family." The 2019 Barolo Bricco Fiasco (with 5,800 bottles released) is a little shy initially, with heavier berry fruit aromas that eventually relax to show campfire ash, pencil shaving and pressed rose. Put this bottle aside for a few more years.

Shows aromas that hint at rose, strawberry and cherry, yet the palate is reserved and tight, offering more balsamic flavors of eucalyptus, juniper and pine. Reveals firm, dusty tannins as this finishes with strong grip. Best from 2027 through 2045. 600 cases made, 180 cases imported.
