Paolo Scavino

The Barolo Carobric is made from 100% Nebbiolo, and is aged for two years in French oak barrels followed by another 12 months in the bottle. With an intense ruby red color and a nose of wild berries and aromatic herbs, this full-bodied wine is perfect with roasted meats and aged cheese.

Wine Spectator

Offers loads of plum, fresh basil and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Very rich and layered. Fabulous. This is a selection from three vineyards, Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric dël Fiasc, which gives balance and complexity to the wine. Best after 2011. 1,500 cases made.

Score: 95. —James Suckling, October 15, 2007.

Wine Advocate

Scavino's 2003 Barolo Carobric reveals pretty aromatics and a rich, weighty core of ripe fruit, chocolate and spices, with superb depth and a long, sweet finish. It is a remarkably detailed Barolo for the vintage. Today it comes across as massive and structured, but the wine seems to have enough stuffing to stand up to the tannins. Carobric is made from a blend of the Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc vineyards. In most vintages Carobric lacks the distinctiveness of Scavino's single-vineyard Barolos, but the ability to blend wines from different sites was clearly an advantage in 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.

Score: 90. —Antonio Galloni, October 2007.
