International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 135

(from Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc fruit) Saturated, deep red-ruby. Dark berry and roast coffee aromas show a hint of exotic liqueur. Sweet, lush and powerful, with deep flavors of black cherry, black raspberry and menthol. Finishes with a rather large tannic structure. A serious wine, but this has always been a bit tricky for Scavino to sell, as it's a blend rather than a Barolo with a precise identity.

Scavino's 2004 Barolo Carobric comes across as classic in its expression of violets, black cherries, minerals and sweet toasted oak. It too offers gorgeous inner sweetness to its fruit, but it is more focused and less concentrated than the other 2004 Barolos. This is a beautifully proportioned, vibrant Barolo that is sure to find many admirers. Carobric is made from a blend of Rocche di Castiglione, Bric del Fiasc and Cannubi This bottling has often suffered an identity crisis among the single-vineyard wines in the lineup but in recent years its personality has gradually begun to show its potential. The 2004 is a terrific effort.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Beautiful floral, blueberry and hints of spice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Very ripe and delicious already. But needs time.

Had not been stored well - exposed to way too much heat. Could still taste the core, but it was completely flat.
