Paolo Scavino

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

Antonio Galloni

AG 96
"The 2016 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is a powerful, muscular wine. Youthfully austere and tannic, the 2016 is going to need a number of years to come around, but it is magnificent, even in the early going. Layers of building tannins enshroud a core of dark Nebbiolo fruit, with hints of dried herbs, iron, leather and sweet tobacco that develop with a bit of coaxing. As always, Bric del Fiasc has a feral intensity to it. The 2016 is an especially fine edition and also a terrific example of the style of this Castiglione Falletto site."

Robert Parker

"Drawing its fruit from Castiglione Falletto, the Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Bric dl Fiasc shows dimension, depth, precision and power. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with a saturated hue, leading to a full, all-encompassing bouquet. The Barolo Bric dl Fiasc is often the most representative wine in the Scavino portfolio, and never has this been more true than in this classic vintage. Dark fruit, licorice, spice and ferrous earth build a fluid and multifaceted bouquet. The mouthfeel sits firm and tight on the palate today, promising to evolve and soften tomorrow. This is a bottle for your cellar."

Wine Spectator

WS 96
"This vibrant red is concentrated and supple, bursting with cherry, plum, licorice and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. Offers a sense of elegance, with a slightly chewy texture, along with excellent length. Best from 2023 through 2040."

""What a gorgeous showing. It opens with heady aromas of menthol, forest berry, iris and new leather while the enveloping, full-bodied palate delivers raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, licorice and baking spice before a minty finish. Enveloping, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide perfect balance. Thanks to the ripe, juicy fruit, you'd never guess this had an abv of 15. Drink 20232036." -Kerin O'Keefe
