About this Item

2008 Barolo Carobric
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Established in 1921, Paolo Scavino is a historical winery in Barolo and has been one of Langhe’s leading and most innovative producers since the beginning. Based in the heart of Barolo, in Castiglione Faletto, the vineyard parcels are found in the perfect terroir where the elegance of La Morra meets the power of Serralunga. With Burgundy as his guide, Enrico – the current custodian and fourth-generation winemaker – vinifies all the parcels separately by way of understanding his land. ‘The Scavino family (Enrico and his daughters Enrica and Elisa) carry forth an important family legacy,’ writes Wine Advocate, ‘with a wide range of cru-specific wines that brilliantly exhibit individual styles.’ Their work is inspired by their love and respect for their territory, pursuing complex, elegant and terroir-expressive wines.

The Carobric Barolo is a blend of grapes from three prestigious vineyards: Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi, and Bric del Fiasc.

  • Rocche di Castiglione: Known for its elegance and aromatic complexity.
  • Cannubi: Famous for its rich, velvety texture and depth.
  • Bric del Fiasc: Renowned for its power and structure.

Critics Ratings

‘A floral, elegant red, smooth in texture and well-muscled with tannins. Black cherry and plum notes hold the center, while the tannins edge their way back in on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2032.’ - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 92/100

‘A little closed on the nose. Good extract and length, but fairly low in acidity. Lacks a little energy.’ - Walter Speller, jancisrobinson.com, 16/20 (Sep 2012)
