    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    From Castiglione Falletto (but close to La Morra), the 2013 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc sees fruit sourced from a family-owned parcel located 270 meters above sea level with marl limestone soils on one side. The other side of the hilltop is characterized by sandy soils that you tend to see in this township. This is a darkly saturated and rich expression of Nebbiolo with bright aromas of dark cherry, dried blackberry, spice, leather and toasted hazelnut. The wine stands out for the singular elegance it possesses, especially in terms of mouthfeel. The finish is still youthful and succulent, so think long-term cellar aging.

    Pure and elegant, offering rose, cherry, strawberry, licorice and tobacco flavors. Vibrant and intense, with a long, grippy finish. A stony note peeks through on the finish.

    Red berry, blue flower, crushed herb and exotic spice aromas unfold in the glass. Elegant, structured and delicious, the full-bodied palate delivers red cherry and licorice, chopped mint alongside bright acidity and firm, refined tannins. It’s impeccably balanced and will age gloriously. Drink 2021 -2043.
