2007 Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco$74.95 -- 2007 Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco
Deep, garnet red in color, the Bricco Fiasco has a fine, ethereal nose that tantalizes with fruity and spicy aromas layered under notes of tobacco and licorice. It is warm and rich on the palate, very soft in the mouth, balancing ripe and sweet tannins with excellent freshness.
"The estate’s 2007 Barolo Bricco Fiasco shows the radiant personality of the vintage while maintaining considerable freshness. Fiasco is a vineyard that typically presents firm tannins, but in 2007 the warmth of the year has given the wine an extra dimension of plumpness to the fruit that is quite welcome. This shows superb purity on the mid-palate, where hints of smoke, tar, licorice and a host of other aromas and flavors add complexity to the seamless fruit. A minerally, saline finish rounds things out in style. This is a stunning Barolo from Azelia. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027." – 95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Good deep red. Wild, smoky aromas of superripe red fruits, dark chocolate and game, with a suggestion of tropical fruits. Big, broad, fine-grained and sweet, delivering the fleshiness and size of the better 2007s. I wanted more high notes but the slowly mounting, powerful finish, featuring serious but fully ripe tannins, lingers impressively with notes of smoke, tar, mocha and minerals." – 93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
