97 Points James Suckling - Extremely perfumed with plums and dried flowers, as well as walnut and hazelnut undertones. It’s full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and chewy, polished tannins. This has gorgeous linear drive with solid tannins. Really excellent. Give it four to five years to come together. Best after 2025.

96 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate - With fruit from Castiglione Falletto, the Paolo Scavino 2017 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is another terrific release from this leading estate. In fact, this wine delivers a big step up in terms of intensity and clarity, with a seamless integration of dark fruit, spice, balsam herb and sweet cherry. It also shows enormous clarity and definition, thanks to subtle touches of limestone and mineral. This wine figures high on a list of the best Barolos made in 2017.

95 Points Vinous Media – The 2017 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is another gorgeous wine in the line up from the Scavino family. Readers will find a Barolo that is more nuanced and less bombastic than in the past. Bric del Fiasc has plenty of power on its own so this style works so well. Dried rose petal mint spice kirsch and iron all blossom with a bit of coaxing. I can’t wait to see how it ages.

95 Points Jeb Dunnuck – The 2017 Barolo Bric Del Fiasc has pure aromatics of stony graphitic earth, licorice, violets, and cherry liqueur. The palate is balanced, with a full structure, noted by dried apricot, blood orange, and cinnamon. The Bric del Fiasc has both floral lift as well as noble structure and has a refreshing nature.

95 Points Wine & Spirits – April frost and summer drought reduced yields at this estate by 35 percent in the 2017 vintage. But, according to Elisa Scavino, the vines were able to find balance, particularly in the Fiasco parcel, where some blocks date to 1979. The wine shows good depth and concentration, it’s ample, dark cherry tones fully ripe and layered with notes of licorice and subtle spice. Hints of forest floor lend a pleasant earthy ballast to the dark fruit, the flavors already well integrated and the tannins refined.
