James Suckling

Attractive red-cherry and spiced red-plum aromas, surrounded by nuances of tar and cedar. The palate has brisk acidity married with upright tannins, creating a juicy red-cherry surge through the finish. Good potential here.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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 contour

Wild notes of eucalyptus, tar, plum and cherry mark this solid red. Combines power and grace, with a lining of dusty tannins on the finish. Bright, lingering with earth and tobacco accents. Best from 2023 through 2042.
