Category Red Wine
Region Italy, Piedmont, Barolo
Brand Paolo Scavino
Our Barolo comes from the best plots of seven cru. The diversity of soils, exposure and altitude characterizes each of these small but very important terroir. Unifying these diversities, the Barolo offers harmony and complexity with an overall character of the zone.

Enticing scents of iris, violet, menthol and exotic spice emerge in the glass. Elegant and fresh, the polished, delicious palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and a potpourri of baking spices. It's beautifully balanced, with bright acidity and silky smooth tannins. While it's already accessible, it will also age for years. Drink 2018-2028.

Intense and firmly grounded, this offers aromas of cherry, licorice, wild herbs and tobacco, with dense, dusty tannins and excellent length. Complex and balanced, this should hit its stride in a few years. Best from 2020 through 2032. 2,166 cases made, 1,166 cases imported.

Scavino's 2013 Barolo is a fresh, inviting wine that captures the mid-weight style of the year nicely. Sweet red cherry, anise, mint, blood orange and exotic spice notes are laced into the super-appealing finish. This is a delicious, entry-level offering from Scavino and one of the better editions of this wine I can recall tasting. The straight Barolo is a blend of fruit from a number of sites, including Mariondino, Manescotto, Vignane, Terlo, Albarella, San Bernardo and Pernanno.
