|Drink window||2023 - 2040|
Paolo Scavino, an Italian winery of unprecedented class. The Barolo represents a selection of fruit from 7 separate vineyard plots spread over the main plots of Barolo. The fruit from those locations is vinified separately and once each barrel has been tasted, the final assembly is created. Barrels of wine that do not meet the estate's quality standards are sold as bulk wine. The wine has been aged in oak for 10 months in barrique and then another 12 months in large "casks" and then another 12 months in bottle. This is a beautiful wine that opens to cherry and blackberry aromas with elegant notes of crushed stone, smoke, licorice and tar. This is an excellent Barolo which is already accessible in the short or medium term.
This wine goes well with red meats (grilled/roasted), lamb, game fur and cheeses that have a rich and strong flavour.
The Nebbiolo grapes (the noble grape of Italy) used for this delicious wine are picked at the beginning of October. Fermentation on stainless steel follows later. The malolactic fermentation takes place in oak barrels and then a 12-month aging in French barriques. The wine then remains in large French oak barrels for 12 months before bottling. Finally, a further year of aging in the bottle follows.
