Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2011
"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."
This 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.
This 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.
