The Wine

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 is an absolutely fabulous collection of (2016) Barolos from the Scavino family. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Italy’s most famous wine lives up to the hype after a spectacular, long 2016 growing season, perfect for the thin skinned, sometimes finicky Nebbiolo. 

95/100, Drink: 2023-2040, Monica Larner, 24 Jul 2020 - The Wine Advocate : "These powerful wines combine elegance with firm structure, offering delicate notes of rose, herbs and red berry framed by licorice and tobacco creating breathtaking tension. Wine Enthusiast Showing Enrico Scavino's signature at the bottom of the label, this is a classic expression of Barolo. The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo offers impeccable balance and an all-pleasing approach.There is something for everyone, especially die-hard Nebbiolo lovers, with energy, power, aromatic finesse and elegant tannins. Fruit for this wine is sourced from a half-dozen vineyard sites from across the appellation, so you get some of the power of Serralunga d'Alba and the precision of Castiglione Falletto. The scope of this wine is wide and broad, offering sweeping panoramic views of this unique grape from Piedmont. This is a terrific value."

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.
