Description:

Wine Enthusiast: 97 Points

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. (KO)

Vinous: 95 Points

The Barolo Bric del Fiasc is one of the most complete and satisfying wines in the range. Exquisitely layered and precise, the Bric del Fiasc is also unusually nuanced in this vintage. Iron, smoke, rose petal, mint and crushed flowers give the wine its distinctive aromatic signatures. The driving Bric del Fiasc tannins are present, and yet the is laid back and understated - as all the s Barolos are - with less of its customary explosiveness and brutish power. I can't wait to see how it ages.

James Suckling: 95 Points

Polished and tight with blueberries, plums and light chocolate. Medium to full body, fine and juicy tannins and a fresh finish. Drink in .

Wine Advocate: 95 Points

From Castiglione Falletto (but close to La Morra), the 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.

Wine Spectator: 95 Points

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. Best from 2022 through 2038. (BS)   (11/)
