The wines here are made by the third generation of owners, the grandchildren of the founder. The sisters Elisa and Enrica Scavino continue to produce remarkable wines at the family compound. These wines are notable, ageworthy classics that are among the best of the entire region in every vintage. This is another wine that CAN be consumed now with a prime ribeye, but best results will come with patience.
From Vinous: “The 2017 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is another gorgeous wine in the line up from the Scavino family. Readers will find a Barolo that is more nuanced and less bombastic than in the past. Bric del Fiasc has plenty of power on its own, so this style works so well. Dried rose petal, mint, spice, kirsch and iron all blossom with a bit of coaxing. I can’t wait to see how it ages. -- Antonio Galloni”
