• Old vines, altitude and calcerous soils produce a highly fragrant, elegant and silky wine
• Uncommon value for top tier Barolo; only 600 cases produced
• JamesSuckling.com: 92 Another very good 2014 Barolo from this producer. It combines floral and earthy notes with dried strawberries and shows a serious tannin structure. The finish packs quite a punch for this vintage. Drink or hold.
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 91 91+ The 2014 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is a typical wine for the vintage. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, smoke, iron and dried rose petal build in this super-classic, light to medium-bodied Barolo from Azelia. The wine displays lovely persistence and grip but, like all of the 2014s here, is tightly wound and a bit edgy.
• Decanter: 92 Azelia's Bricco Fiasco is made from 65-year-old vines, and is from the same site as Scavino's Bric del Fiasc - the latter being its name in the local dialect. There's a smokiness on the nose that may derive from the small barrels in which it has been aged, but the red fruit aromas penetrate through clearly. It's rich, full-bodied and concentrated in the mouth, with firm tannins. It's spicy and intense thanks to its good acidity, with a solid, lively and long finish.
