The 2008 Barolo Riserva Bric del Fiasc is a huge, huge wine. Waves of fruit saturate the palate as the Riserva shows off its personality. There is so much intensity that the tannins are at times barely perceptible. Dark red fruit, smoke, incense, spices and crushed rocks burst from the glass as this rich, explosive Barolo shows off its pedigree. The Riserva is pure Bric del Fiasc at its very finest. The 2008 Riserva is still in cask. I can t wait to taste this again. Anticipated maturity, 2020-2033.
