Barolo, Pietmont, Italy

James Suckling 95
Very decadent and rich with dried meat, ripe berry and red wood aromas. Full body, chewy tannins, fresh acidity and a flavorful finish. This is tight and impressive. Dusty texture. Try in 2020 to give it time to develop in the bottle. Strength in finesse.
Wine Spectator 91
An elegant style, with intensity to the cherry, leather, spice and woodsy eucalyptus notes. Firm and slightly austere, with a mouthcoating, grainy finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. 566 cases made.

The 2012 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a dark Nebbiolo with good structure and a linear approach. There are distant notes of cured meat, leather and spice that play a supporting role to dark fruit and plum. The finish is long and shows good complexity. This is a well built Barolo that needs extra years of cellar aging before it loses its baby fat.
