Paolo Scavino Barolo Cannubi 2016
Paolo Scavino, a historical winery in the Barolo region, was founded in 1921 and remains a family tradition. Winemaker Enrico Scavino began working in the winery at 10 years old and uses 60 years of experience to craft cru-specific wines with brilliant individual styles. Cannubi is probably the most historical vineyard in Barolo. The old age of the vines gives a unique quality to this concentrated and rich Nebbiolo.
WA97: The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Cannubi is another wine that should greatly interest avid collectors. It will not be produced after the 2018 vintage, but this 2016 vintage awards us with first-rate quality and precision, making for a memorable send-off. This expression from Cannubi offers tight and aromatic fruit with wild cherry, rose petal and powdered licorice root. It also shows a slightly dusty or mineral quality with finely nuanced tannins and a tapered or streamlined mouthfeel that adds to its delicate elegance. The effect here is polished with glossy intensity.
