Three great tenors are much more effective than a choir. This Barolo is made by blending three important crus cultivated by the azienda agricola Paolo Scavino: Rocche di Castiglione, Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto and the mythical Cannubi of Barolo. The result is one of the most fascinating and sensuous wines of the estate.
This rich wine shows exotic fruit on the nose, with blueberry, blackberry and flowers. Full-bodied, concentrated and chewy, with layers of ripe tannins and loads of fruit. The finish is massive. Best after 2013. 1,600 cases made.
Sweet roses, minerals, mint, licorice and dark raspberries flow from the 2005 Barolo Carobric. This richly- textured, multi-dimensional wine reveals tons of complexity. The finish is long, sweet and incredibly pure. Carobric is a wine that has grown significantly in stature over the last few years and the 2005 is terrific. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.
Good deep red. Musky spices, tobacco and menthol over redcurrant on the nose. Juicy and tightly wound, with pronounced acidity. Less pliant but more gripping than the normale, with notes of herbs and mint. Finishes quite youthfully tight, even a tad dry.
