The Barolo Carobric is made from 100% Nebbiolo, and is aged for two years in French oak barrels followed by another 12 months in the bottle. With an intense ruby red color and a nose of wild berries and aromatic herbs, this full-bodied wine is perfect with roasted meats and aged cheese.
"Scavino's 2004 Barolo Carobric comes across as classic in its expression of violets, black cherries, minerals and sweet toasted oak. It too offers gorgeous inner sweetness to its fruit, but it is more focused and less concentrated than the other 2004 Barolos. This is a beautifully proportioned, vibrant Barolo that is sure to find many admirers. Carobric is made from a blend of Rocche di Castiglione, Bric del Fiasc and Cannubi This bottling has often suffered an identity crisis among the single-vineyard wines in the lineup but in recent years its personality has gradually begun to show its potential. The 2004 is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024." 94 Points,
"Beautiful floral, blueberry and hints of spice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Very ripe and delicious already. But needs time. Best after 2011." 93 Poitns,
