Winemaker's Notes

Elegance, pleasantness, harmony, together with a great structure and intense and rich aromas made this vintage one of the most elegant and appreciated ones. This vintage is part of a magnificent series of Barolo that started in 1996.

Critical Acclaim

"Beautifully crafted, with wonderful aromas of roasted meat, chestnuts, berries and cedar. Full-bodied, round, extremely polished. Long, flavorful finish."
94 Points

"1996 which was the first vintage Scavino produced this wine. Carobric is made from a blend of fruit sourced from the Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric del Fiasc vineyards. Scavino’s 1996 Barolo Carobric, tasted from magnum, displays notable vibrancy and freshness in both its aromas and flavors, with layers of sweet dark fruit, minerals and earthiness that are just starting to show some tertiary nuances. It offers notable length, lively acidity and plenty of fruit..."
92 Points

"Deep red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at dark berries, licorice and mint. Primary and vibrant in the mouth, with a perfumed floral quality, but a bit aggressive today, and not showing the richness of Scavino vineyard-designated '96s. Finishes slightly minty and firmly tannic.

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
