Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
For many Barolo lovers, Cannubi is the most exceptional cru. A grand cru needs more attention in the vineyard so that the wine can express all of its elegance. In order to maximize the conditions of the vintage, Enrico Scavino must be a haute couture tailor in the vineyards.
Very ripe berry and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, complex and chewy. Nice velvety tannins and a long and powerful finish.
"Good deep, full red. Wonderfully vibrant nose hints at raspberry, flowers, minerals and pepper. Sappy and vinous in the mouth, with insinuating sweetness to its flavors of red cherry, raspberry and dried flowers. Not as large-scaled as the Bric del Fiasc but this energetic, sharply delineated wine expands impressively with aeration and finishes with terrific building length. Lay this one down for fireworks in about eight years.
Rating: 95+ Points"
International Wine Cellar
"Laser-like precision of sour red cherry and crushed rose petals, graceful and deep.
"The 2010 Barolo Cannubi is a layered and ethereal wine with dried flowers, candied orange peel, tar, spice, tobacco and cola. That signature touch of dried mint or pressed lavender flower appears at the back. This expression is particularly clean, focused and bright. Paolo Scavino has rented this half-hectare vineyard site since 1985. The mouthfeel is thin and compact."
The Wine Advocate
"A Barolo with pure berry, cherry and ripe-plum character. Full body with chewy tannins and a chocolate-powder, berry and plum aftertaste. Balanced and fresh. Better in 2017."
"The 2010 Barolo Cannubi is the hardest of these wines to read at this stage. Here it is the Scavino house style that seems to dominate over the characteristics of the site. Smoke, tar, licorice and menthol are some of the notes that take shape at first. Sage, rosemary, new leather and tobacco follow, adding nuance to the rich, resonant finish. The silky tannins are suggestive of Cannubi, but otherwise the vineyard's signatures aren't expressive. Today, the Cannubi comes across as extremely powerful, dark and not fully formed. I look forward to tasting it again in another 6-12 months."

Learn About Paolo Scavino Map It
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.

Learn About Nebbiolo
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...
