2015 Paolo Scavino ‘Carobric’ Barolo
Wine Spectator 94: Blood orange and rooibos tea aromas segue to cherry and strawberry flavors in this dense, sinewy red. Taut and racy, with plenty of energy driving the long finish. Iron, tar and tobacco accents round out the flavor spectrum. Best from 2023 through 2045. 511 cases.
James Suckling 97: Dried berries, rose petals, rose stems, tar, cedar and tobacco. Structured and very serious indeed on the palate, where chewy tannins caress, but also strengthen the vibrant but dried red fruit that permeates this red. Drink in 2023.
Wine Enthusiast 94: Iris, woodland berry, pipe tobacco and wild herb aromas are front and center on this fragrant, focused red. Smooth, savory and polished, the structured palate offers juicy raspberry, pomegranate, licorice and a hint of coffee bean. Close-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide tension and balance. Drink 2023–2030.
