Paolo Scavino Barolo Annuziata Reserva Piemonte Italy Red 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Loads of fascinating aromas?plums, dried flowers and berries?follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Caressing and refined. Another wonderful Cannubi from Scavino. Best after 2007.

This wine gives me goose bumps. First time I had it was in small wine bar in Rome after a lovely day with a close friend & his family. Plums, dried fuits, juicy, complex. Pure velvet. It's what made me start loving wine.

The medium ruby-colored 1995 Barolo is an expansive, evolved, aromatic offering with cedar and balsam wood, sweet cherry jam, and rose petals. The light color is deceptive given its intense bouquet and expansive, lush, concentrated style. It will not be long-lived, but for drinking over the 7-8 years, this is a seductive, hedonistically-styled Barolo.

This is a superb set of 2001s. Scavinoandrsquo;s richly-colored 2001 Barolo is quite youthful and tannic. With some time in the glass, notes of spices and mint emerge followed by a massive and dark palate of stewed fruits. It doesnandrsquo;t quite have the length of the single-vinyard wines, but still offers excellent potential although it will need time to come together. Made from a blend of the Vignane and Via Nuova crus in Barolo and the Meriondino and Vignolo crus in Castiglione, this wine is usually one of the best relative values in Barolo.

Attractive aromas of blackberries cherries and grilled meat. Full-bodied with big velvety tannins and a long long long finish. A gorgeous young wine. Scavino is a master of Barolo. Best after 2008. 1 500 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.

The 2001 Barolo Cannubi, a dark ruby, is a classic in the making. It offers a multi-dimensional, delicate nose of flowers, menthol and minerals with plenty of ripe dark cherry fruit, great length and a nuanced, ethereal finish. It will require at least a few years of bottle age and will still be vibrant and full of flavor at age 20. Compared to Scavinoandrsquo;s more imposing Barolos Carobric and Bric del Fiasc, the Cannubi can sometimes be overpowered, but given some cellaring it typically begins to strut its stuff around age 10 and develops into a magical Barolo that can challenge many of the regionandrsquo;s top wines. I still have fond memories of the sublime 1989 and 1990 tasted last year. A great effort. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2019.

Deep saturated red. Vivacious aromas of black cherry, menthol, minerals and licorice. Chewy, ripe and impressively deep; a wine that combines superb richness and excellent clarity. Impressively long aftertaste features well-buffered, even tannins.

Decadent and exotic with wild aromas of ripe berry and black truffles. Full-bodied and Port-like, with ultrafine tannins and an incredible finish. One, two, three... it goes on and on. Wonderful. Best after 2008.
