The 2008 Barolo Carobric bursts from the glass with racy red fruit. This is a vibrant, beautifully focused Carobric endowed with gorgeous personality and sheer class. The tannins are firm yet beautifully balanced. The 2008 is a fabulous Carobric that impresses for its energy, verve and drive. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028. ||There is always something new happening at Scavino, where Enrico Scavino, along with his daughters Enrica and Elisa, continues to push the envelope. This year the Scavinos have a new Riserva they are issuing to mark the 30th Anniversary of Bric del Fiasc, first released in 1978. The 2009s, 2010s and 2011s I tasted point to an estate working at a very high level of overall quality and consistency. Readers who want to learn more about the estate may want to take a look at my video interview with Elisa Scavino. Wine Advocate.April, 2012

Paolo Scavino is an Italian wine producer based the Castiglione Falletto district of the Barolo region. The winery is comprised of 23 hectares which includes 19 of the historical Barolo crus located in Castiglione Falletto, Barolo, La Morra, Serralunga d’Alba, Verduno and Roddi. The family owned winery distinguishes itself with meticulous care for their vineyards and passion for terroir driven wines that are stylistically mindful of elegance. Only three indigenous grape varieties are used in the entire productions: Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. The winery is currently run by Enrico Scavino, along with daughters Enrica and Elisa. Enrico started to work in the winery in 1951 when he was only 10 years old. Now with 60 years of experience behind him, he is one of the most respected winemakers in Piemonte and Paola Scavino wines are regarded as great quality throughout their range.
