The 2001 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is a gorgeous wine laced with smoke, tar, licorice and menthol. The 2001 remains powerful and authoritative, with more than enough fruit to balance its huge tannins. Today it comes across as almost impenetrably young. There is plenty of upside to cellaring this fabulous Barolo. (AG)
*** Ranked #26, Top 100 Wines of 2005 *** Intense aromas of licorice, berries and tobacco with just a hint of citrus. Full-bodied, with an excellent intensity of fruit and a long, silky finish. Juicy and rich. Always classic in a top year. (JS)
Good full red. Complex, lively nose melds cassis, blackberry, violet, minerals and spicy oak. Silky and suave on entry, then strong and dense in the middle, with flavors of cassis, dark chocolate and menthol. Very primary Barolo with excellent lift. Finishes very long, with chewy tannins and a light touch. 93+ Points (ST)
West of Castiglione Falletto. Medium slightly browning garnet but with bright core. Leather and tar on the nose and yet at the same time perfumed with violets. On the palate, rich, ripe and spicy. (JH)
