2018 Paolo Scavino Barolo Monvigliero
This great Barolo Monvigliero from top winery Paolo Scavino comes from the Monvigliero vineyard of the same name, which can really be considered the "grand cru" of the village of Verduno. The Monvigliero vineyard is therefore the most important vineyard of the northern Italian municipality of Verduno. This cru was first vinified in the 2000 vintage and blended to the Barolo until the 2007 vintage after which this vineyard was bought by the Scavino family and made as a single cru. The vineyard has a soil of predominantly limestone, light colored and mixed with calcareous veins, which is very characteristic of the municipality of Verduno.
The Monvigliero has great finesse and aromatic complexity, is pronounced floral spicy, savory, with balsamic expression in its expression. The wine is a beautiful ruby red in color. The nose is lively and beautifully composed with notes of eucalyptus and violets. Excellent concentrated taste with lots of minerality and firm but pleasant tannins. An extremely elegant cru, feminine and full of character with a slightly fresh aftertaste. This wine goes well with red meats (grilled/roasted), lamb, game fur and cheeses that have a rich and strong flavour.
The Nebbiolo grapes are harvested manually by winery Paolo Scavino during the 1st weeks of October. After maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in barriques and then a further 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine then ages for another 6-7 months in the bottle.
