Barolo Paolo Scavino 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Paolo Scavino is a historic winery in the Barolo region. It was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto by Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Farming has always been a family tradition and passion. Enrico Scavino together with the daughters Enrica and Elisa, fourth generation, run the family Estate today. Through over 60 years of experience he has focused on createing the best wine possible and sourcing from the finest crus. Through the years Scavino Barolo’s have received wide attention and accolades including perfect 100 point scores. This Barolo 2011 DOCG, 100% Nebbiolo, comes from the best plots of seven different vineyard plots. The diversity of soils, exposure and altitude characterizes the terroir of each of these small but very important crus. Unifying the diverse expressions, this wine offers harmony and complexity with the overall character of the Barolo zone. Separate vinfication including destemming and light crushing, then maceration and the alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel with temperature control and indigenous yeasts. Each lot is kept separate and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 10 months and further 12 months in large casks. The final blend is a careful selection in the cellar of the most performing barrels. James Suckling scored this 93 points saying "There's focus and beauty to this full-bodied Barolo with pure fruit, walnut and berry character. Round and velvety. Clean finish. Shows wonderful potential. Better in 2018. I like this as much as the excellent 2010."
