Paolo Scavino Barbera d'Alba 2016 ~ Barbera d'Alba, Italy
90/100 Wine Spectator
Wine Spectator "A rich, lush style, displaying black cherry, blackberry and subtle chocolate flavors. Dense yet succulent, with a mouthwatering finish".
Paolo Scavino, a historical winery in the Barolo region, was founded in 1921 and remains a family tradition. Winemaker Enrico Scavino began working in the winery at 10 years old and uses 60 years of experience to craft cru-specific wines with brilliant individual styles. This 100% Barbera, aged in stainless steel, delivers the true character of the grape.
It’s floral, elegant, and expressive. Scavino is of Italy’s great Estates with holdings in Barolos finest Crus, Cannubi, Bric del Fiasc and Rocche dell’Annuziata. Along with Elio Altare, Enrico Scavino is surely responsible for the great reputation Piedmont has today.
