Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2011

SKU 8535


From the top of this steep and warm hill in Castiglione Falletto, the first Cru vinified separately. Historical Cru produced since 1978. A unique value for the family. Superlative harmony and elegance: the vines age, 65 years on average, gives indescribable aspects. Enveloping and never-ending flowers and fruits. Bricco Fiasco ® shows perfectly the radiant personality of Castiglione. Extremely perfumed, floral, with a core of red fruit. Rich, warm, intensely fresh. Ripe tannins.

Vinous"The 2011 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is pretty but almost unusually polished and silky for a site that tends to produce much firmer and more tannic wines. Crushed flowers, red berries and mint all add to a sense of aromatic lift, nuance and total class. In 2011, the Bricco Fiasco is all about finesse."

Wine EnthusiastThis boasts alluring aromas of pressed rose, perfumed berry, baking spice and a balsamic note. The elegantly structured palate is still young but already expresses bright red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice, menthol and chopped herb. Firm, polished tannins and fresh acidity provide the framework.

Wine SpectatorThis red evokes sweet spice, licorice, leather and dried cherry aromas and flavors. The firm tannins are well-integrated, providing support and focus as this ends with savory accents. Best from 2018 through 2030. 560 cases made.
