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.
