Tasting through the recent output from Paolo Scavino with Elisa Scavino is always a real delight. Each wine truly had something unique to say. Since the fruit from the family's 20 different vineyards is all vinified identically, you can really get an idea of what's going on in a particular vintage in Barolo by tasting through these site-specific bottlings.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 94
"Here is another rookie in the lineup for Paolo Scavino. The Ravera vineyard was purchased in 2015, at 2.7 hectares and about 360 meters in altitude. It is their highest vineyard and the last to be harvested every year. This east-facing parcel is never too hot, always showing cooler-climate conditions than the others, with fine tannins and a good dose of acidity. The 2015 Barolo Ravera is a very tight and and precise wine, with notes of exotic tea that follow blackberry, dried cherry and licorice. This is a great new addition to the Scavino portfolio at this time of important changes for the winery." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"Pure and smooth in texture, featuring cherry, plum, soy, tar, tobacco and eucalyptus flavors that stay focused from beginning to end. Though firm, the tannins have a plumpness to them. Gains equilibrium in the end. Best from 2023 through 2040."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 94
"Enticing scents of iris, botanical herbs and woodland berries are front and center on this fragrant red. The firm palate offers Marasca cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white pepper alongside youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins."
