Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
The first single-vineyard Barolo made for first time in 1978, in Castiglione Falletto village from Fiasco MGA, in their property since 1921. Here they own 2,5 hectares cultivated with Nebbiolo for Barolo. It’s an amphitheater south-west exposed located at 280 m of elevation.
Thanks to the very central position in the Barolo region, the soil is very complex. The Tortonian limestone and the Helvetian yellow sands cross combining into the wine a great finesse and freshness of the aromatics with intensity and depth of the structure.
93 Points, James Suckling
Lovely wild-strawberry, raspberry and red-cherry fruit on the nose, together with mineral tinges. Medium-bodied and fresh with good intensity, despite the lighter structure this year. The tannins provide enough support to keep it going. Fresh, balanced finish. Try from 2024.
95 Points, Wine Advocate
With aromas of earth, dried spice and crushed stone, the Paolo Scavino 2018 Barolo Bric del Fiasc holds its own in this vintage. Thanks to its wide shoulders, the wine gives emphasis to a core of dark fruit, licorice and grilled herb. This 9,000-bottle production uses fruit from the Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione Falletto.
