5 cases
Equiv. £116.67 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A very “La Morra” lifted aroma, bursting with ripe summer strawberries, raspberries and cherry stones. Finesse and sweet ripe fruits on the one hand and quite broad, powerful tannins on the other, this needs time to show at its best. This is all about texture and sweet-salty fruit 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.
