The History of Paolo Scavino

The Paolo Scavino winery was founded in 1921 by Enrico Scavino’s grandfather Paolo. Today Enrico runs the winery with the help of his daughters Enrica and Elisa. The winery is located in Castiglione Falletto, one of the eleven communes of the Barolo appellation, in the historical Langhe hills. The Scavino winery is rare in their possession of grand cru’s in six of the eleven villages of Barolo.

Scavino Barolo 2006Scavino Barolo 2006
Scavino Barolo “Classic Label” 2006 – This bottling is a blend made with grapes from Scavino’s prized vineyards.  It represents the philosophy of the Scavino estate.  It is aged in small French Oak for one year, then large oak for one year followed by one year of aging in the bottle.  The result is a perfumed fruit with a touch of oak balanced by firm tannins and a rich mouth feel.  This wine drinks great now and will only get better with age. 

This classic Barolo is decadent and exotic with wild aromas of ripe berries and black truffles. Full-bodied with ultra fine tannins and an incredible finish.

12 Bottle Case  – $525

Bottle – $46

Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio 2005

The Bricco Ambrogio is from the township of Roddi, which is small and still undiscovered.  Enrico realized the great potential of this vineyard and made the decision to bottle it separately with outstanding results.  It is a Barolo of elegance that is approachable when young, but gains silky texture when it ages.

Scavino Barolo “Bric del Fiasc” 2005

The modern history of the Scavino family starts with this vineyard, within the Fiasco cru. Here the Nebbiolo grapes were always the best, so in 1978 young Enrico convinced his father Paolo to vinify these grapes separately. This is the family’s first, and still most loved cru.  It is rich and full bodied with mouth-filling tannins.

Scavino Barolo “Carobric” 2000

This Barolo is made by blending three important crus: Rocche di Castiglione, Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto and the mythical Cannubi. The result is one of the most fascinating and sensuous wines of the estate.  We are offering the 2000 vintage from the Scavino Library to show the beauty and grace of an aged Barolo.  This is a rare treat.
