Paolo Scavino, Barolo Carobric 2012
Scavino's 2012 Barolo Carobric is nicely layered throughout. Creamy and inviting, the Carobric is quite expressive at this early stage. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of red-fleshed fruits. Mint, cinnamon, savory herbs, leather and rose petal are some of the nuances that open up as the Carobric shows off its personality. The Carobric often gets lost in the mix at Scavino, but history has shown it ages very well. In this vintage, the Carobric is mid-weight and a bit more laid back than normal, but the ability to blend fruit across different sites was clearly an advantage. Antonio Galloni, Vinous (92)
One 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. Since the 1980s he has been crafting benchmark modern Barolo. Through meticulous vineyard work, fermentations and finishing in a mixture of French oak barriques and the larger traditional ‘Botti’ casks, Enrico makes svelte wines whose polish and sophistication enhance rather than shroud their character and typicity.
Paolo Scavino is an historical winery in the Barolo region. It was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto from Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Farming has always been a family tradition and passion.
Enrico Scavino together with the daughters Enrica and Elisa, fourth generation, run the family Estate. He started to work full time in the winery in 1951 when he was 10 years old. A young winemaker who inherited the passion and devotion for the land he belongs to. Through over 60 years of experience his focus has been to invest on important cru of Nebbiolo to show the uniqueness of each terroir.
Their work is inspired by the love and respect they have for their territory and they pursue purity of expression, complexity and elegance for their wines from the three local grapes Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo.
