About this Item

2008 Barolo Monvigliero
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.

Critics Ratings

‘Floral and fresh with lots of roses and spices with hints of ripe fruit. Love the nose! Full and chewy with polished tannins and a balanced finish. Caressing and beautiful on the palate.’ - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 96/100

‘The 2008 Barolo Monvigliero flows from the glass with layers of silky, textured fruit. This is one of the more feminine wines in the Scavino lineup. Floral, minty notes develop in the glass, adding complexity, nuance and personality. The expression of fruit is very Scavino, while the aromatics and structure are pure Monvigliero. This is another intriguing Barolo from Scavino.’ - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate, 94+/100 (2012)

‘Verduno gives tough-as-nails Barolo; Monvigliero is the one true grand cru. Stylish and pure, almost opulent. Great length. 2015 - 2040’ - Ian D’Agata, Decanter, 94/100

‘Beautiful cherry and strawberry fruit is delineated on a well-integrated frame in this delicate red. Tea and iron notes add complexity, with the fine tannins woven into the finish.’ - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 92/100 (Feb 2013)

'Served to me from under the table – hors concours, so to speak. Spicier and denser than Cannubi. Very closed and compact palate, really reluctant, but fragrant fruit on the finish. Big wave of tannin but not rough. Lay down.'- Walter Speller, jancisrobinson.com, 17/20 (Sep 2012)
