Some Stand-Outs From Piedmont!
Wines From Paolo Scavino
"At a recent tasting, I had the opportunity to taste over 100 wines, including those from a group of prestigious Piedmont producers. A select group of wines stood out from the crowd, particularly the wines of Paolo Scavino in Barolo. Three of their 2003 Barolos displayed the power and depth one would expect from wines of this region. However, what impressed me most was the elegance, suppleness and texture which each of the 3 Barolos possessed. These are wines that can be appreciated now (with an hour or so in a decanter), or aged ten years or more!" - Chuck Russo, Owner Wine and Spirit World
Regarding the 2003 vintage in Barolo: "The 2003 year vintage turned out better than anyone could have imagined...the vintage turned out to be a very good, even excellent, year for the best producers in the region". - James Suckling, The Wine Spectator, Sept. 2007
Enrico Scavino has been at the forefront of the modernist movement in Piedmont since the 1980's , and is today one of Italy's most respected and highly regarded winemakers. His Barolos stray from the typical characteristics, exhibiting a more soft, lush style that are delicious to drink within months of their release, as well as later in their evolution.
