2015 Paolo Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio DOCG
Another nice Barolo wine from the Italian top winery Paolo Scavino. Through his years of experience, Enrico Scavino recognized the quality of this undiscovered beautiful cru. That is why he decided to buy it in 2001. By coincidence, this cru was the only one of the entire estate that was not affected by the hail in 2002, making it debut as a solo with a lot of personality and potential back then, even in such a difficult year.
The 2015 Barolo Bricco Ambrogio comes from the largest single-vineyard plot of the Scavino family and covers 5 hectares. The wine is a more structured and tannic expression of the Nebbiolo grape that can certainly use some extra years of aging in the cellar to bring the taste to an even greater height. The wine is full, concentrated with lush fruit flavors that separate into thick, juicy layers. Beautiful intense aromas of black currant, cherry, leather and spices.
The Bricco Ambrogio has an intense and versatile aromatic spectrum. The core is soft and polished by a beautiful acid-tannin balance. There is an underlying depth in this Barolo and the finish is long and nuanced. This wine also received a nice Parker rating of 94 points.
This wine goes well with red meat (grilled / roasted), lamb, fur game and cheeses that are rich and powerful in taste.
