Paolo Scavino, and more recently his daughter, have always made fabulous Barolos, as evidenced by my previous tasting notes on the 1988s, 1989s, and 1990s. However, in 1993, he began utilizing small barriques (the percentage of new wood varies according to the vineyard), pushing his wines to an even higher level of quality. While the 1993s may not possess the power, intensity, and extract of the great 1990s, qualitatively they are equals. The awesome 1993 Barolo Bric del Fiasc (one-third new oak casks) is a candidate for the Barolo of the vintage. Made from 45-year old vines, this full-bodied, blockbuster Barolo is amazingly rich, superbly balanced, and oh, so profound. The fragrant, penetrating bouquet of black-cherries, new saddle leather, tar, and rose petals, intermixed with subtle spicy toast, is followed by an exceptionally rich, medium to full-bodied wine with terrific delineation and focus, as well as gorgeously integrated acidity, tannin, and alcohol. This dazzling young Barolo should reach full maturity in 5-6 years and last for 15+. Feb 1997, www.robertparker.com
