Another beautiful Barolo wine from the Italian top wine house 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 cru of the entire estate that had not been damaged by the hail in 2002, making it debut as a solo with already a lot of personality and potential even in such a difficult year.

The 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 could certainly use some extra years of aging in the cellar to take the taste to even greater heights. The wine is full-bodied, concentrated with luscious fruit flavors that separate in thick, juicy layers. Beautiful intense aromas of blackcurrant, 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 to this Barolo and the finish is long and nuanced. This wine also received a nice Parker rating of 94/100 Parker & 97/100 Suckling points.

This wine goes well with red meats (grilled/roasted), lamb, game fur and cheeses that have a rich and strong flavour.
