91 points "Slightly herbal or minty on the nose, but the palate is all that we’ve come to expect from Scavino, with wonderfully pure red fruits and subtle notes of mineral and sous bois for complexity. Tar and dark chocolate wrap up the supple finish. Drink 2005–2020. Score: 91. April 02, 2004." Best 2005-2020

92 points "The 1999 is a big, strapping Bric del Fiasc, boasting a lot of structure and a potent, brooding personality. Though it offers plenty of fruit and the rich style that is the hallmark of this wine, it also comes across as somewhat heavy and lacking the elegance of the finest vintages. 92/Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024. Scavino is the producer who put the Fiasco vineyard on the map, and the 1999 is most impressive. A potent and penetration nose of tobacco, chocolate, and tar is followed by a palate of mouthfilling, concentrated, high-extract yet sweet flavors, abundantly endowed with licorice, tar and minerals. The wine is very solid n texture, but voluptpus in its caressing tactile sensations. Maturity: 2006-2022. 94 pts. $85. 10/03. Score: 92. —Antonio Galloni, October 2006." Best 2006-2022
