Paolo Scavino Barolo Monvigliero (750ml)
Paolo Scavino is an historical winery in the Barolo region. It was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto by Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Farming has always been a family tradition and passion. Enrico Scavino together with the daughters Enrica and Elisa, fourth generation, run the family Estate. He started to work full time in the winery in 1951 when he was 10 years old. A young winemaker who inherited the passion and devotion for the land he belongs to. Through over 60 years of experience his focus has been to invest on important cru of Nebbiolo to show the uniqueness of each terroir.
This Barolo comes from the homonymous vineyard of Monvigliero that can be properly considered the “grand cru” of Verduno village. This cru was first vinified in 2000 vintage and blended into the Barolo until the 2007 vintage when this vineyard was bought by the Scavino family and made as a single cru. The site sits at an altitude of 310 mt and is optimally facing south-east. The soil is predominantly limestone, light colored mixed with chalky veins quite characteristic of in this commune. The vines were planted between 1968 and 2005.
Great finesse and aromatic complexity, distinctly floral spicy, savory, balsamic in its expression. The nose is vivid and compound. The texture is focused. An extremely elegant cru, feminine and full of character.
