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
"Paolo Scavino's 2013 Barolo Cannubi stands apart in its ability to show the finessed characteristics of this special vineyard site. Cannubi is one of the first crus to reach maturity each harvest, and the quality of its fruit is complex, layered and ethereal. This is made abundantly clear in this classic vintage. The wine shows delicate tones of wild berry, balsam herb, dried ginger and white truffle. In the mouth, it moves with sensual and silky grace." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 96
"This red starts out with firm grip to the cherry, strawberry, rose, leather, tar, tobacco and iron flavors. Opens up with aeration, turning seductive and elegant. Vibrant acidity keeps this focused through the lingering finish."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Intensely fragrant, this beautiful, vibrant wine offers enticing scents of iris, violet, rose and perfumed wild berry. It's elegantly structured and loaded with finesse, offering cherry, strawberry, crushed herb, coffee and white pepper alongside taut refined tannins. It's impeccably balanced, with bright acidity. Give it time to fully unwind and develop even more complexity."
