James Suckling "Wow. Love the perfumes to this with plums, cherries and hints of flowers. Full body, chewy tannins, polish and precision. Relatively delicate finish".
Monica Larner, Wine Advocate "The Paolo Scavino 2013 Barolo sports the depth and elegance that famously characterizes the house style. Fruit is sourced from various points across the appellation and the specific blend changes according to the needs of the vintage. Among the various Barolo wines made by this estate, this wine is the most accessible and approachable for sure. The bouquet offers compelling aromas of black fruit and dried blackberry and there's plenty of spice, liquorice and tar at the back. The wine shows its complexity as well as its varietal purity. You'll notice the handwritten signature of patron Enrico Scavino on the front label".
This Barolo represents the history and tradition of blending different crus of Nebbiolo in order to create a house style. The same care and quality work are employed on this wine as for all of the cru Barolo. Sourced from the top performing plots of 7 single vineyards in the village of Castiglione Falletto (Rocche Moriondino, Vignolo and Pernanno vineyards), Barolo (Albarella, Terlo and Vignane vineyards) and Serralunga d'Alba (San Bernardo vineyard). This wine is an opportunity to enjoy a great Barolo at an exceptional price.
