Daily Wine 10/2/17:
Paolo Scavino – Bricco Ambrogio – Barolo – 2013
- This wine is 100% Nebbiolo from the Barolo cru of Bricco Ambrogio in the village of Roddi.
- The cru sits at 275m in altitude and has a south to south-east exposure.
- Soils are composed of limestone and fossilized shells.
- Enrico Scavino recognized the quality of the cru and purchased it in 2001. Bricco Ambrogio has an intense and complex spectrum with a soft and polished core and a beautiful acid-tannic balance.
- Paolo Scavino owns 29 hectares entirely in the Barolo DOCG and works on 20 Barolo historical crus in seven of the eleven villages.
- Paolo Scavino was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto from Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Enrico Scavino and his sisters Enrica and Elisa are part of the fourth generation currently run the estate.
- Enrico started to work full time in the winery in 1951 when he was 10. His passion is to represent the differences between the different crus of Barolo and their terroirs.
- Pair this with duck, chicken, and game.
