Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
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%.

Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Barolo Carobric is a deep, sensual beauty endowed with gorgeous purity in its layers of dark red fruits, smoke and tobacco. Deceptively medium in body, the wine caresses the palate all the way through to the firm, sturdy finish. The wine’s balance, depth and overall sense of harmony are remarkable. Carobric is a blend of several vineyards, mostly Rocche di Castiglione, with a touch of Bric del Fiasc and Cannubi. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. "
93 Points

"Dark red. Aromas of strawberry, tobacco, mocha and nuts. Densely packed but youthfully dry, and not currently showing the lift of Scavino's other 2006 Barolos. Finishes with a boatload of granular tannins that will require a long time to resolve. I find more energy, if less richness, in the 2005 version of this wine.
Rating: 90(+?)?"

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

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) 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 Piedmont, 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...
