Tasting Note:

Rich cherry and berry flavours, this is dominated by generous, perfumed red fruit notes of kirsch and small bright berries steeped in alcohol, mixed with oak spice characteristics and a gripping, binding tannic structure. Powerful and full-throttle Barolo. The Scavinos have 1.5 hectares in this great Cru, one of the finest vineyards in Barolo. A sandy south facing vineyard planted with old vines, dating back to 1942, situated at 380 metres above sea level. This is released as a Riserva and so is aged for one year in barriques and two years in large oak casks, followed by a year in bottle.
