Paolo Scavino Cannubi Barolo DOCG 2018
95 pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Packaged with a black label, the Paolo Scavino 2018 Barolo Cannubi opens to a delicate and luminous appearance with lifted aromas wild rose, lilac, wild berry and crushed stone. The wine shows great depth and complexity compared to some of the more subdued wines found in this vintage. This is one for the cellar. Best After 2024."
95 pts. James Suckling:
"Very floral nose with bright red berries, some cedary oak and and an exotic hint of musk. Medium-to full-bodied with intense, spicy fruit flavors against a backdrop of lightly firm and lightly grainy tannins that together produce surprising length. Well poised and showing good pedigree, despite the difficult vintage. This will age nicely, but is great to taste now. Try from 2025."
FROM THE WINERY
Cannubi is probably the most historical vineyard of the all Barolo region, in Barolo village. We vinify this cru from 1985 and this is one of the two oldest vineyards of ours planted in 1946 on the central crest of Cannubi hill.
Low yield of this vineyard is due to a special combination of natural factors one of which is the old age of the vines assuring a unique quality. Here it comes the concentration and richness of this Barolo where the charm of Nebbiolo is fully expressed. Harmonious and very fine texture.
