TASTING NOTES

"(magnum) Scavino's 1999 Barolo Carobric explodes from the glass with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint, licorice and sweet tobacco. Impeccable and layered, the 1999 impresses for its exceptional balance and pure sensuality. In magnum, the Carobric is still very, very young. Readers lucky enough to own it are in for a real treat. This is a dazzling, total mesmerizing Barolo from the Scavino family." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Aromas of crushed blackberries, with hints of lemon grass and rose bush. Full-bodied, with full tannins that are ultra-fine and have great length. It goes on for minutes. Very well-done. This is a blend of vineyards and very fine indeed. Best after 2007. 1,945 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Full, deep red. Superripe, sappy aromas of dark cherry and mocha, with suggestions of exotic fruits. Silky but tight, even a bit withdrawn. Today the wine's strong tannins cut off the fruit. Finishes with intriguing notes of marzipan and dried flowers." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
