Tasting Note:

Open, inviting and aromatic. Classy, soft ripe and floral strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruits, touches of rose and kirsch. The enticing flavours are bolstered by a fine tannic grip and solid enough structure though this is wine built more on charm and seduction than anything else. The roundness, body and smoothness point to a warmer style vintage but there is enough freshness and definition to complete a very beautiful picture. 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.
