Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red color, with aromas of blackberry, licorice and blue and blackberry. Full-bodied Nebbiolo, with silky tannins and a long elegant finish. A wonderful balance of elegance and power.
My Notes:

About Paolo Scavino:

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.
