Barolo Carobric Scavino 95js/92ag 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, James Suckling: "This blend of top vineyards shows verve and clarity with ripe and silky tannins and plenty of plum, cherry and terra-cotta aromas and flavors. Full body, firm backbone of tannins and acidity. Clean finish. Drink in 2020." 3/16. 92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Scavino's 2012 Barolo Carobric is nicely layered throughout. Creamy and inviting, the Carobric is quite expressive at this early stage. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of red-fleshed fruits. Mint, cinnamon, savory herbs, leather and rose petal are some of the nuances that open up as the Carobric shows off its personality. The Carobric often gets lost in the mix at Scavino, but history has shown it ages very well. In this vintage, the Carobric is mid-weight and a bit more laid back than normal, but the ability to blend fruit across different sites was clearly an advantage." 3/16.
