A gorgeously bright and poised single vineyard Barolo from the Scavino family's Azelia label. The step-up to Bricco Fiasco has the Azelia feminine and floral nose but is slightly weightier and fuller in the mouth that the basic label, with sweet fruit nuances fleshing out the serious but fine-grained, minerally tannin structure. This delight will benefit most from age but it already unfolds very nicely in the glass and decanter.

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 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner

"The 2015 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is made with fruit from 80-year-old vines that were planted by Luigi Scavino's grandfather. This vineyard in Castiglione Falletto has more sand in the soil compared to Serralunga d'Alba, resulting in floral and fruity aromas. I love the deep inner intensity of this wine plus the pretty fruity contours that give it so much lift and buoyancy. The wine is immediately bright and forthcoming. Dusty mineral tones with integrated tannins appear on the long finish. The wine spends 24 months in mostly neutral barrique. Some 5,800 bottles were made. -- Luigi Scavino and his family own vineyards in both Castiglione Falletto (Bricco Fiasco with sandy soils) and Serralunga d'Alba (Margheria, San Rocco and Bricco Voghera for the Riserva)." Drink 2020 - 2040

92+/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2015 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is another attractive, perfumed wine in this range. Iron, smoke, blood orange, kirsch and orange peel are all nicely delineated throughout. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2015 has enough drive, depth and sinewy tannin to support two decades of very fine drinking. Time in the glass allows the fruit to emerge, but the 2015 remains reticent and in need of time to be at its very best." Drink 2020 - 2035
