Paolo Scavino - Barolo 2012
What an excellent pairing with the duck. A Barolo with an excellent PQR.
Paolo Scavino – Barolo 2012 (90 tsomw points)
In the glass a dark ruby red color, light transparent.
On the nose intense aromas of red cherries, raspberries, plums, rose petal, licorice and hints of tobacco and herbs.
On the palate medium bodied with dark berries, cinnamon and spiced. Shows fine grained tannins and nice complex structure. Reallu lovely Barolo in an excellente price quality range.
Needs some time to be at its ideal drinking window.
This Barolo has a special value for our family and represents the history and tradition of blending different cru of Barolo.
Our Barolo comes from the best plots of seven cru. The diversity of soils, exposure and altitude characterizes each of these small but very important terroir. Unifying these diversities, the Barolo offers harmony and complexity with an overall character of the zone.
Separate vinfication. Destemming and light crushing. The maceration and the alcoholic fermentation are in stainless steel with temperature controlled and indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. The tartaric stabilization occurs naturally during the winter with the low temperatures.
Every plots of the crus is kept separate and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 10 months and further 12months in large casks. Final blend as a result of a further selection in the cellar of the most performing plots of the vintage. Approximately one year of stainless steel and 10 months of bottle aging before release.
