The Wine

94/100 James Suckling : "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). The 2015 vitage is ready to enjoy now - very moorish window now - but will develop further in the cellar for the medium term. "I’m loving the combination of dried cranberries and incense with fresh rose petals and fruit tea. While the tannins are firm and serious, the medium-to full-bodied palate remains supple and elegant." 

93/100 Robert Parkers Wine Advocate : "For a few years running now, this has been one of the Scavino family’s signature bottles. The goal here is to aim higher than your standard “base” or “classico” Barolo. The Paolo Scavino 2015 Barolo is made with a complicated blend of fruit from seven vineyard sites spread clear across the appellation from Castiglione Falletto, Barolo, Serralunga d’Alba and more townships. Each parcel is fermented separately, and some parcels are split into two or more individual fermentations. In order to maintain the highest quality standards, some 10% of the fruit is sold off as bulk, and once the overall selection is whittled down, the best fruit remains in-house. This is a compact and darkly saturated wine with bold blueberry and blackberry fruit. The wine shows a steady center of gravity in this warm, fruit-driven vintage."

About the Wine Maker

Paolo Scavino established the estate in 1921 in the historic township of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the Langhe region in Piemont.The estate is owned and managed by two generations of Scavino; Enrico who followed in the footsteps of his father Paolo, and his daughters Enrica and Elisa. The modern history of the Scavino family starts with a vineyard known in the local dialect as Bric dël Fiasc within the Fiasco cru. Here the Nebbiolo grapes yield consistently great wines. In 1978 young Enrico convinced his father Paolo to vinify these grapes separately. In this way this much sought-after cru was established and it has since risen to the summit of Barolo.
