This one of the top Crus in the Barolo region, and is only produced by the Scavino family. Tar, smoke, licorice, menthol and leather emerge from the 1999 Barolo Bricco Fiasco. Still fresh and vibrant, the 1999 has lost most of its baby fat and is at the early part of its drinking window. The wine turns darker with time in the glass, but never loses its mid-weight personality. This is an immensely appealing Barolo to drink now and over the next handful of years. The characteristic energy of Bricco Fiasco comes through nicely on the finish.
