Paolo Scavino Barolo Monvigliero 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Floral and fresh with lots of roses and spices with hints of ripe fruit. Love the nose! Full and chewy with polished tannins and a balanced finish. Caressing and beautiful on the palate...96" JamesSuckling.com 07/12 "The 2008 Barolo Monvigliero flows from the glass with layers of silky, textured fruit. This is one of the more feminine wines in the Scavino lineup. Floral, minty notes develop in the glass, adding complexity, nuance and personality. The expression of fruit is very Scavino, while the aromatics and structure are pure Monvigliero. This is another intriguing Barolo from Scavino. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028....94+" WA 4/12 "Beautiful cherry and strawberry fruit is delineated on a well- integrated frame in this delicate red. Tea and iron notes add complexity, with the fine tannins woven into the finish. Best from 2015 through 2028...92" WS 12/12

Served to me from under the table hors concours so to speak. Spicier and denser than Cannubi. Very closed and compact palate really reluctant but fragrant fruit on the finish. Big wave of tannin but not rough. Lay down. 17/20 (WS) Jancis Robinson.
