Barolo Carobric Scavino 93ag Premier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2006 Barolo Carobric is a deep, sensual beauty endowed with gorgeous purity in its layers of dark red fruits, smoke and tobacco. Deceptively medium in body, the wine caresses the palate all the way through to the firm, sturdy finish. The wine's balance, depth and overall sense of harmony are remarkable. Carobric is a blend of several vineyards, mostly Rocche di Castiglione, with a touch of Bric del Fiasc and Cannubi." 02/10 92 Points, Wine Spectator: "Beginning to develop some mushroom and spice scents, this red also boasts cherry, plum and tobacco flavors. The tannins offer plenty of grip on the finish, but overall this is well-balanced. Best from 2013 through 2030. 300 cases imported." 03/11 91 Points, James Suckling: "A layered and rich wine, with plums and toasted oak. Full and round, lots of fruit. Long finish. Hold off until 2012." 01/11
