From a good looking bottle with a high fill and a solid cork seal. Out of the gate this is big and bold in the glass. Dark and opaque. With air this explodes in the glass, developing an amazing perfume. Notes of violets, rose petals, black earth, some cedar and a little soy sauce. Great balance in the mouth. Vibrant acidity. Long finish. Great showing!

Lovely fruit. Dark, tight, quite thick in the middle with tarry notes, some soft cherry. Smoke, tobacco, leather. Quality and good stuff.

Reddish tawny and opaque. Masculine nose. With air this opens up to show cherries, dried roses, tobacco, pepper and a little warm plum. Nice structure. Went well with the Italian fare we ordered up.

1996 Scavino Bric dël Fiasc from a 3L, can't believe I was able to taste this more than once.

I love this wine and this producer but this didn’t show as pretty as I suspected. Fun nonetheless and I have a TON of respect for the winemaker of course.

It showed much better than I'd expected, and definitely benefited from a vigorous double decant a few hours before it was served. It has plenty of color left, and even has a bit of purple remaining. A mix of dark and red fruit predominate, though there is plenty of savory leather with a dab of tar and a whiff of florality, all held together with a refreshing and welcome bright tartness on the finish. While I tend to prefer more traditional producers, this bottle along with a recent 1996 Roberto Voerzio Barolo Brunate have me seriously questioning my prejudices against "modern" Barolo, at least once they have some real age on them.

Beautiful. Rich dark chocolate, aniseed, vanilla. So glad I was able to taste this!
