92/100
Susan Hulme, The Wine Independent
The 2018 Paolo Scavino Barolo is a blend of grapes from several different vineyards including Castiglione, Serralunga and Barolo. The nose is a little closed at this tasting but shows aromas of spice and berry fruits. It is medium-full bodied with fine tannins and juicy freshness. This is an attractive wine with plenty of spicy, cherry fruit on the finish. Elegant and appealing, it is approachable now. Drink now to 15 years.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous
The 2018 Barolo is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet dried cherry, cedar, tobacco, cinnamon, orange peel and crushed flowers give this mid-weight, ethereal Barolo lovely aromatic presence to match its light-bodied personality. All the elements are nicely woven together.

Paolo Scavino

One of Italy’s great Estates with holdings in Barolos finest Crus, Cannubi, Bric del Fiasc and Rocche dell’Annuziata. Along with Elio Altare, Enrico Scavino is surely responsible for the great reputation Piedmont has today. Since the 1980s he has been crafting benchmark modern Barolo. Through meticulous vineyard work, fermentations and finishing in a mixture of French oak barriques and the larger traditional ‘Botti’ casks, Enrico makes svelte wines whose polish and sophistication enhance rather than shroud their character and typicity. Their flagship must surely be the Bric del Fiasc, one of the earlier examples of a Barolo single vineyard bottling, the first vintage being 1978. It has a sun-blanched south-western exposure and one of the region's most complex soil compositions - a complex mixture of blue grey marne, sand, limestone and redder sandstone - the coming together of the Tortonian soils of La Morra & Barolo and the Helvetian soils of the Serralunga valley. This is a wine the embodies Castiglione: Powerful and long lived, spicy yet with more elegant highlights of bright red fruit. As complete a Barolo as you will find.
