92pt Baby, Baby Barolo Under $10btl
The Scavino family (Enrico and his daughters Enrica and Elisa) carry forth an important family legacy with a wide range of cru-specific wines that brilliantly exhibit individual styles – despite all being made by the same hands. Because Scavino produces Barolos from so many different sites, including four single-vineyard wines as well as two blends, they can source juice for their little
Vino Rosso unlike any other Barolo producer. That’s what makes this wine, we affectionately call “baby, baby Barolo”, so special and a MUST BUY selection.

2016 Paolo Scavino * Rosso Vino da Tavola
EMAIL CASE DEAL- $108.00cs (that’s only $9btl)
Piedmont does not have an IGT appellation, but if it did this wine would be a perfect candidate. The 2016 Rosso is a blend of Nebbiolo (declassified Barolo status), Dolcetto and Barbera. This is a great value buy to serve on a daily basis. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and each variety is vinified separately before the final assembly is made. The succulence and richness of the mouthfeel recalls the Dolcetto grape and blue fruits scream of Barbera, but the bouquet shows some of the wild berry and licorice aromas that you would otherwise associate with Nebbiolo. This is a complete package of great Piedmont varieties wrapped up in one great wine.
