Pre-aged for ten years in the winery, this library stock is an amazing opportunity! From 65 year old vines, this is a gorgeously bright and poised single vineyard Barolo. Compared to the standard Azelia, the Bricco Fiasco has similar feminine and floral nose but is notably weightier and fuller in the mouth, with silky fruit nuances to soften the more serious fine-grained, minerally tannin structure With the benefit of age this wine has become yet more sophisticated, rounding savoury depths behind the perfume. Pre-aged Barolo's are rare - don't miss out!

Its Origins

Alongside Massolino the barolos from Azelia are eye-watering bargains in the fine wine world. Anyone with a love of the nebbiolo grape should search out these under-valued Barolos for they are some of the most age- worthy wines in the world. In 1920 Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino began to vinify part of the grapes produced in the family's vineyards, a small rural reality in the heart of the Langhe region, in Castiglione Falletto. His son Alfonso started enthusiastically to bottle the wine produced and thanks to Luigi's father, Lorenzo, with perseverance and willpower, the wines were for the first time exported. The Azienda Agricola Azelia, in the centre of the area of Barolo production, is nowadays composed of 16 hectares and it produces, on average, 80,000 bottles per year. Luigi is supported by his wife Lorella and his son Lorenzo, who bears the name of his grandfather and who represents the fifth generation of wine producers. The family management is essential as it permits an extreme precision in every step of the production.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2006 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is simply magnificent. It, too, is impressively powerful, but here the layers of flavor are beautifully filled out. Exotic, ripe red fruit, smoke and menthol are but a few of the nuances that gradually emerge as this refined and impeccably elegant wine emerges from the glass. The French oak is beautifully integrated, while the wine's weight and sheer harmony leave a lasting impression." Drink 2014 - 2026
