Paolo Scavino Barolo Carobric 2000
Vineyard surface: 3,3400 ha Soil type, exposure and altitude, planting year: the ROCCHE DI CASTIGLIONE (planting year 1970; exposure south-west; altitude 300 m a.s.l.) is located in the highest part of Castiglione Falletto where the soil is the arenaria of Diano d'Alba (Diano sandstone) with alternating strata of yellowish-gray sandstones and dark brown-gray sand beds. This kind of soil is well drained and poor, spurring on the roots to go deep in the soil: the wines produced from this vineyard are therefore complex, very well structured and they express multidimensional flavors. Vinification: the grapes are harvested normally during the first decade of October. The maceration and the fermentation occur in steel rotary fermenters with temperature controlled. The malolactic fermentation occurs in oak barrels. Aging in French oak barriques for 12 months and further 12 months in French casks. After that, one more year of bottle aging before the commercialization. N° bottles per year: 18’000 Vintage: 2003 Alcohol: 14,5% Dry extract: 29 g/L Acidity: 5,5 g/L Grape yield: 50 q/ha
External Reviews for Paolo Scavino Barolo Carobric
Thick and rich with lots of plum, berry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with integrated tannins and a long finish. Solid and compacted wine. Best after 2007.
Wonderfully fresh and floral, with strawberry, raspberry and cut cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with refined tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Builds on the palate. Very elegant and long. Not quite the 1997 or 1995, but clearly outstanding. Best after 2008.
The 2001 Barolo Carobric opens with a perfumed nose of freshly cut flowers, crushed raspberries and menthol. It offers flavors of ripe red fruits with excellent structure and length, closing with good freshness on the finish. Made from the Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc vineyards, it comes across as very classic owing to its blend of fruit sourced from parcels from different communes, and therefore understandably lacks the focus and definition of Scavino's single-vineyard wines. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.
From Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc, blended after their period of aging in wood. Good full red. Very spicy, Burgundian aromas of red and black fruits, Havana tobacco and meat. Fat and full on the palate, if less refined and perfumed than the Cannubi. A chunky, chewy style of Barolo that finishes with big, building tannins and very good length.
The 2000 Barolo Carobric is admirably fresh, floral and tarry in its aromatic gamut, round and voluminous in its flavors. But the finish, here as well, is less supple than in truly superior vintages. Drink: 2005ndash;2016.
The 2000 Barolo Carobric (magnum) is an exotic, full-bodied wine loaded with scorched earth, licorice, tar and smoke, all of which add considerable nuance to a massive core of fruit. This hulking, seamless Barolo is at least a few years from early maturity and should continue to drink well for many, many years. It is simply magnificent. Anticipated maturity: 2015ndash;2030.
