    Winemaker's Notes:

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Barolo Carobric is a deep, sensual beauty endowed with gorgeous purity in its layers of dark red fruits, smoke and tobacco. Deceptively medium in body, the wine caresses the palate all the way through to the firm, sturdy finish. The wine’s balance, depth and overall sense of harmony are remarkable. Carobric is a blend of several vineyards, mostly Rocche di Castiglione, with a touch of Bric del Fiasc and Cannubi. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

    Dark red. Aromas of strawberry, tobacco, mocha and nuts. Densely packed but youthfully dry, and not currently showing the lift of Scavino's other 2006 Barolos. Finishes with a boatload of granular tannins that will require a long time to resolve. I find more energy, if less richness, in the 2005 version of this wine.
