1998 Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco Wine Review by Billy
Eyes:Red Brick in the glass, definitely showing maturity.
Nose:Leather, cedar charcoal, cola and cherry layers. With time and decanting the cola emerges with cedar and vanilla. Over more time dry tobacco comes out as another layer. Delightfully fine nose.
Palate:Tight tannins but layered. Needs decanting. Air opens up with even tannins and a solid back with a very nice silken feel.
Finish: even old world finish. Some cedar and vanilla reemerge with the predominance of fruit coming out here.
Overall a fine Barolo, richly layered from a good year.
