    1996 which was the first vintage Scavino produced this wine. Carobric is made from a blend of fruit sourced from the Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric del Fiasc vineyards. Scavino's 1996 Barolo Carobric, tasted from magnum, displays notable vibrancy and freshness in both its aromas and flavors, with layers of sweet dark fruit, minerals and earthiness that are just starting to show some tertiary nuances. It offers notable length, lively acidity and plenty of fruit to drink well for at least another decade.

    Beautifully crafted, with wonderful aromas of roasted meat, chestnuts, berries and cedar. Full-bodied, round, extremely polished. Long, flavorful finish.

    Deep red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at dark berries, licorice and mint. Primary and vibrant in the mouth, with a perfumed floral quality, but a bit aggressive today, and not showing the richness of Scavino vineyard-designated '96s. Finishes slightly minty and firmly tannic.

Established in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto, one of the historic Langhe townships, this estate is now entering its third generation of Barolo production. With a historic connection to the land at the forefront of the winemaking philosophy, this estate creates exceptional Barolos, Barberas, and Dolcettos. The Bric del Fiasc Barolo is the hallmark of the family's production, from a vineyard that always produced the best Nebbiolo fruit. In 1978, this fruit was vinified on its own for the first time and it has remained a special bottling ever since.
