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
"This wine draws its fruit from a half hectare of vines that have often suffered in the hot years, and it will be discontinued as of the 2018 vintage. The Scavino family was not able to renew their lease here. There is a lovely elegance to this 2015 Barolo Cannubi, due largely to the high elevation of this parcel, where there is more dryness in the topsoil and more erosion, resulting in less plant vigor. It is made from smaller grape clusters. There is more concentration to this Barolo as well, and the tannins are never too powerful. But the low yields in the past and the general challenge to growing here make for more difficulty than it is worth, so I suppose this 2015 vintage could be considered something of a collector's item as a result." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"A supple, ripe style, boasting rose, plum, cherry, licorice and tea flavors, with a hint of mint. The tannins are soft and wide. Lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2038."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 93
"Dark-skinned berry, thyme, ground clove and blue flower aromas form the nose. Focused and austere, the palate shows red cherry, orange zest, sage and star anise before a coffee bean close. Taut, fine-grained tannins provide the framework."
