Scavino Paolo Barolo Monvigliero 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Scavino's 2007 Barolo Monvigliero is by far the most concentrated, rich and structured Barolo I have ever tasted from this historic vineyard in Verduno. Firm yet polished tannins frame an explosive core of dark red fruit, rose petals, mint and spices. The Monvigliero shows marvelous focus and intensity. It is one of the most tannic wines of the vintage, but also one of the most promising. Sweet, floral notes leave a lasting impression on the vivid, textured finish. Scavino's Monvigliero will be a fascinating wine to follow, although I fear it may require significant patience. This is a marvelous debut vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032...94+"WA 2/11

For being a 2008 Barolo I was blown away by this wine coming from vineyards on the "Femminine" side of Langhe Valley at the very tip being Verduno. Outstanding aromas of berries, eucalyptus, and mint...a fantastic wine!

What a nose of white truffles and berries. Very aromatic. Then turns to flowers and dark fruits. Full and solid, with beautiful core of dark fruits and ripe tannins. Bright and fresh. First year of this vineyard near Verduno. 45 year-old vines. Bette... James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2007 Scavino, Paolo Barolo Monvigliero 750ml

WA: 94pts-JS: 95pt- Superb raisiny, violet flower aromas with a clean herbal structure. The acidity and tannic level are quite noticeable as one would expect from a classic Barolo. Awesome cocoa powder and coffee notes carry on forever on the palate.

Good full, dark red. Deep, pure, brooding aromas of black cherry, licorice and leather, plus a hint of oak spices. Offers lovely aromatic lift but comes across as tightly wound, even youthfully imploded, today, showing less texture than the more op... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
