Based in Castiglione Falletto, Bricco Fiasco is Azelia's historic cru parcel. Vines planted here exceed 65 years in age. Yields are naturally low, and fruit concentration is very evident as a result. The 2010 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a gorgeous wine with supple and rich textural finesse that glides smoothly over the palate, leaving no rough edges or hardness. Instead, the wine shows impeccable integration both on the nose and in the mouth. The bouquet is redolent of dark fruit, licorice, smoke, spice and tar. This Barolo is aged in barrique, of which 20% is new and 80% is neutral. ML
Smooth, exhibiting licorice, leather, black cherry and black tea flavors, with a touch of spice. Compact and broad, presenting a grainy swath of tannins on the long finish. BS
Enticing aromas of sliced mushroom, foie gras and red fruits follow through to a full body, with layers of ripe tannins and gorgeous fruit. Balanced and juicy finish. Better in 2016 but so pretty now. Hard not to drink this now.
Azelia's 2010 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is incredibly polished in this vintage. Dried roses, crushed berries, tobacco, mint and spices are woven together in a fabric of nearly indescribable class and elegance. The ferrous notes and massive tannins typical of this Barolo are nearly completely covered with layers of deeply expressive, perfumed nuances that captivate all the senses. This is a super-classic feeling Bricco Fiasco from Azelia. I never thought I would describe a Bricco Fiasco Barolo as seductive, but Azelia's 2010 is that, and a lot more.
