Paolo Scavino Barolo 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

"The soft-textured, open 1997 Rocche dell’Annunziata (3-liter) is another beautiful wine. Showing plenty of super-ripe fruit, tar and licorice nuances and a lush personality it nevertheless has plenty of underlying structure as well as balance. It is a great choice for current drinking and its slightly more evolved aromas and flavors suggest it will reach full maturity sooner than the other vintages in this flight. 93/Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015. While Scavino may be most famous for his Barolo Bric del Fiasc, to me his Riserva from the Rocche dell’Annunziata vineyard is his finest wine. With its typically perfumed nose, silky fruit and fine tannins, it is the most elegant and refined of Scavino’s Barolos. In general the Rocche dell’Annunziata is a wine with a broader drinking window, as is typical of Barolos from La Morra, although judging by the 1990 its early drinkability does not seem to compromise the wine’s aging potential. Several recent bottles of the 1998 and 1999 have been immensely enjoyable...93." WA 10/06
