THE RECENT PICK

Paulo Scavino, Barolo

Wine Spectator Top 100 Special!
"A beautiful wine." The Wine Advocate

Paolo Scavino is one of the premier Barolo producers in Piedmont - and at this price, a steal!

In limited supply, this Winter Storm Special is a recent Wine Spectator Top 100 wine and Barolo not to be missed.

Frigid weather?

Have no fear! Pour a glass throughout the winter and let this Nebbiolo do what it does best... hit you with power and grace, a combination that will warm you from head to toe from the very first sip.

"This starts out with plenty of cherry, plum and orange peel flavors, offset by iron, eucalyptus and tobacco accents. The finish is rustic, with the tannins flexing their muscles, yet this comes together in the end." Wine Spectator

What do we love about this wine?

Scavino is known for its silky texture and robust tannin juxtaposition. Cherry and blackberry flavors collide with crushed stone, tabacco, tar and balsamic notes. A rich palate with subtle vanilla, roasted coffee, and spice make this Barolo a perfect pairing for hearty winter dishes.

No wonder Wine Spectator selected the 2014 Scavino Barolo as one of its Top 100 picks.

Enjoy!

Summary


WINE SPECTATOR

93 / 100

#88 Wine Spectator Wine of 2018

"This starts out with plenty of cherry, plum and orange peel flavors, offset by iron, eucalyptus and tobacco accents. The finish is rustic, with the tannins flexing their muscles, yet this comes together in the end. A wine for the long haul. Best from 2023 through 2040."

JAMES SUCKLING

93 / 100

"A full and juicy red with a solid center palate of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Medium- to full-bodied, round and rich. A lovely finish. Drink in 2020."
