Paolo Scavino Barolo 2018
Paolo Scavino is a long standing family winery in the Barolo region. It was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto by Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Farming has always been a family tradition and passion. Today, Enrico Scavino together with his 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 the important cru of Nebbiolo to show the uniqueness of each terroir. Their legendary vineyard holdings include Cannubi, Bric del Fiasc, Rocche dell’Annunziata, Monvigliero and others.
This Barolo “normale” comes from the best plots of seven crus. Unifying the diverse of soils, exposure and altitude, the Barolo offers harmony and complexity with an overall character of the zone.
Each plot of the crus is kept separate while destemmed, vinifed in stainless steel, and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 10 months and further 12 months in large casks.
2018 Baroli are fruitful and forward-drinking, with relatively softer tannins. This 2018 from Scavino was rated 93 points by the Wine Advocate and by James Suckling.
