Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!
Three great tenors are much more effective than a choir. This Barolo is made by blending three important crus cultivated by the azienda agricola Paolo Scavino: Rocche di Castiglione, Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto and the mythical Cannubi of Barolo. The result is one of the most fascinating and sensuous wines of the estate.
"Offers loads of plum, fresh basil and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Very rich and layered. Fabulous. This is a selection from three vineyards, Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric dël Fiasc, which gives balance and complexity to the wine. Best after 2011. 1,500 cases made."
"Scavino’s 2003 Barolo Carobric reveals pretty aromatics and a rich, weighty core of ripe fruit, chocolate and spices, with superb depth and a long, sweet finish. It is a remarkably detailed Barolo for the vintage. Today it comes across as massive and structured, but the wine seems to have enough stuffing to stand up to the tannins. Carobric is made from a blend of the Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc vineyards. In most vintages Carobric lacks the distinctiveness of Scavino’s single-vineyard Barolos, but the ability to blend wines from different sites was clearly an advantage in 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018."
The Wine Advocate
Enrico Scavino has been at the forefront of the modernist movement in Piedmont since the 1980s, and is today one of the most respected and highly regarded winemakers in all of Italy. Scavino diverged sharply from the tough-as-nails-when-young traditional style of Barolo to produce soft and lush wines that are delicious within months of release as well as later in their evolution, applying the same winemaking techniques to Barbera and Dolcetto.

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
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...Read More About Nebbiolo
