Barolo ‘Bricco Fiasco’, Azelia

100% Nebbiolo from 2.5 ha of south-facing vines up to 80 years old (average of 45 years)  grown in calcareous clay soils. Maceration lasts for an average of 25 days, followed by maturation in medium-capacity oak barrels and French oak barriques (10% new, 90% second use) for 24 months. The wine then ages in bottle for one year before release.   The Bricco Fiasco vineyard is named for its shape – ‘fiasc,’ meaning ‘flask’ in the local Piedmontese dialect. 500 cases produced.
