Description

Scavino’s Barolo Riserva Novantesimo has only been produced twice now, first in 2011 to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the foundation of the winery and then in the stellar 2016 vintage. The current generation decided to reproduce the bottle and the label used by the grandfather Lorenzo and father Paolo up until 1964. 

 

 

97 pts Vinous Media: "The 2016 Barolo Riserva is a dense, dark, towering wine. A rush of plum, pomegranate, spice, espresso, cloves and licorice saturates the palate. This sumptuous, full-throttle Barolo has a ton to offer. The interplay of textural richness and structure is compelling. This is a fabulous wine with great purity of fruit, depth and intensity. Scavino lovers will be delighted."

 

98 pts Jeb Dunnuck:  "Dark red/magenta in color, the 2016 Barolo Riserva is remarkable, offering loads of kirsch, polished leather, balsamic, dark chocolate, and crushed violets. The list goes on and on as it opens and begins to show more mineral aromas of graphite and truffle. Medium to full-bodied, it's an exquisite red, with ripe, polished tannins, a seamless structure, and a long finish. It retains wonderful purity and ripeness and leaves a haunting sensation as it tapers ever so slowly. This stunning wine from the Scavino family is built for the long haul."
