Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2012


SKU 09275


From the top of this steep and warm hill in Castiglione Falletto, the first Cru vinified separately. Historical Cru produced since 1978. A unique value for the family. Superlative harmony and elegance: the vines age, 65 years on average, gives indescribable aspects. Enveloping and never-ending flowers and fruits. Bricco Fiasco ® shows perfectly the radiant personality of Castiglione. Extremely perfumed, floral, with a core of red fruit. Rich, warm, intensely fresh. Ripe tannins.

James Suckling"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."

Vinous"The 2012 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is wonderfully lifted and precise in the glass, qualities that aren't typical of this renowned site in Castiglione Falletto. Crushed rose petals, anise, mint and red cherry all meld together. In 2012, the Bricco Fiasco is decidedly feminine and gracious, with striking aromatics but less of the muscle than is often present. The 2012 should drink well with minimal cellaring. Although not especially representative of its origins, the 2012 is a very pretty wine in its own right. -- Antonio Galloni"

Wine SpectatorAn 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.

Wine EnthusiastOak, toast, espresso and dill aromas come together on this. The firm palate offers raw red cherry, vanilla and mocha framed in assertive, fine-grained tannins. A hint of raisin closes the finish.
