Paolo Scavino Barolo

On the second day, everything came together beautifully for the 2010 Paolo Scavino Barolo. If you cannot wait this long. make sure you decant the wine a while before drinking.

Plum, raspberry, cranberry, forest floor creates an enticing blend on the palate. This wine does not have the typical tar & roses flavour. The tannins are dry, finely grained and long in the mouth. The acidity is well integrated. This wine delivers a beautiful balance before it finishes super long.

You would call this a full-bodied wine, but there is actually more energy than fruit weight. Wow! This is the entry level Barolo. However, it comes from an excellent vintage. I am looking forward to the 2016 when it lands here, soon.

Score: 96/+++
