1994 Paolo Scavino, Barolo Bric del Fiasc, Piemonte, Italy

Shy nose at first with very little to offer. Later – smoke, red toasted fruit, herbs, metal and dark fruits in bitter chocolate. The taste of the wine is its force with harmony, elegance and nice length and tannin-acidity-Barolo-bite (91) I have a hard time in judging the future of this wine, and my guess is that the fruit will not evolve so much more, but the high acidity will stay intact.

Tasted February 12th. Glass: Riedel Sommelier Burgundy Grand Cru
