Scavino is the producer who put the Fiasco vineyard on the map, and the 1999 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is impressive. A potent and penetrating nose of tobacco, chocolate, and tar is followed by a palate of mouthfilling, concentrated, high-extract yet sweet flavors, abundantly endowed with licorice, tar, and minerals. The wine is very solid in texture, but voluptuous in its caressing tactile sensations. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2022.
Slightly herbal or minty on the nose, but the palate is all that we've come to expect from Scavino, with wonderfully pure red fruits and subtle notes of mineral and sous bois for complexity. Tar and dark chocolate wrap up the supple finish. Drink 2005–2020.
