Since that time, Barolo collectors have been on the hunt to find perfectly-stored bottles, and today we have the answer to your prayers. Often thought of as an outspoken modernist, the fact is that Enrico Scavino had the foresight to see the faults in the modernist movement as far back as the mid-nineties. It's because of this that he began to dial back on the new oak long before his peer-set, and just in time for the '99 vintage. The Carobric now resides as one of the wines of the vintage. ✦ Paolo Scavino Barolo Carobric 1999 AG 96 » $165 (750ml) » $345 (1.5L) limited "Readers lucky enough to own it are in for a real treat.

In fact, their parcels in the Bricco Fiasco vineyard were once part of the larger family holding. Produced from a choice, high altitude parcel of 65- year old vines, you could say that Bricco Fiasco is the family's pride and joy. The 2001 Azelia Bricco Fiasco is a 15-year old 2001 Barolo, which has been perfectly stored since bottling, coming from a family who is just now gaining the recognition they deserve. ✦ Azelia Bricco f iasco Library Release 2001 AG 94 » $110 (750ml) » $265 (1.5L) limited "The 2001 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is one of the most impressive wines in this ten-year retrospective."
