Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

"Very ripe strawberry and spices on the nose. Full-boded, chewy and very rich. Layered and powerful. Fantastic for the vintage. Better thand the 2001 and close to the 2000. Best afer 2011. 225 cases made."

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.
