Tasting Note:

One of the edgier, fresher Barolos in the cellar, showing crisp spicy fruit, notes of salted dark plums and grippingy forest fruit. This is the second vintage of a new Scavino acquisition – 3ha of 35-40 year old vines in Ravera which, at 430 metres altitude, is their highest vineyard and the last to be harvested. A cool and windy terroir that faces east from which only 6000 bottles are produced, the rest is sold in bulk. Aged for one year in large oak ‘botti’ and one year in barriques with a maximum of 10 percent new wood.
