94 points "Good deep red. Aromatic nose combines floral, tobacco and smoky elements. Sweet red fruit and floral flavors framed and lifted by harmonious acidity. An ample Barolo with clarity and class, not to mention superb balance. Finishes with perfectly buffered tannins and excellent persistence. ST The 1998 Bric del Fiasc, from a vintage many have overlooked, is packed with heady notes of ripe dark fruit, licorice, mineral and sweet toasted oak flavors in a style that is utterly captivating. It is another full-bodied, powerful Bric del Fiasc. It too looks to be long-lived." Best 2008-2018
