2001 Barolo

Scavino; Paolo

flagNorthern Italy / Italy

This is a superb set of 2001s. Scavino’s richly-colored 2001 Barolo is quite youthful and tannic. With some time in the glass, notes of spices and mint emerge, followed by a massive and dark palate of stewed fruits. It doesn’t quite have the length of the single-vineyard wines, but still offers excellent potential although it will need time to come together. Made from a blend of the Vignane and Via Nuova crus in Barolo and the Meriondino and Vignolo crus in Castiglione, this wine is usually one of the best relative values in Barolo.
