Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 2016
This cru is the image and identity of the Paolo Scavino winery. Their very first single vineyard Barolo made for first time in 1978, in Castiglione Falletto from the Fiasco cru. Theirs since 1921. Balance of elegance and power. Density of fruit, vibrant and refined tannins in the texture.
"Drawing its fruit from Castiglione Falletto, the Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc shows dimension, depth, precision and power. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with a saturated hue, leading to a full, all-encompassing bouquet. The Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is often the most representative wine in the Scavino portfolio, and never has this been more true than in this classic vintage. Dark fruit, licorice, spice and ferrous earth build a fluid and multifaceted bouquet. The mouthfeel sits firm and tight on the palate today, promising to evolve and soften tomorrow. This is a bottle for your cellar." 98 Points Wine Advocate
