This wine has evolved quite a bit in the last two years. So, I’d say this medium to full-bodied Barolo is “A Point” right now.
Beautiful secondaries have entered the stage, showing subtle nuances of tobacco, earth, antiqueshop and truffle sprinkled over the lifted, feminine flavors of dried roses and cherries and figs.

This is the real deal. Deep deep fruit, black cherries and blackberries and plums BUT totally lifted too with some floral mystery- violets? Spice and concentration. Little acetone and sweetness. Sensual but still harsh. Needs much more time. But seriously incredible wine. So intense and pure. And clean. Excited to see where this will go. — 15 days ago
Great balance! Ripe cherries and dark plum, floral, tobacco and spice notes.

Vino color ladrillo, Parecido al barbaresco de la noche, no se decantó y me arrepiento de eso, se tardo un rato en abrir, ya se siente cansado el vino pero fue el segundo mejor vino de la noche... taninos ya integrados, olores complejos bien interesantes — a month ago
Pop and pour. Quite a bit of VA on the nose that never fully dissipated but the bottle was consumed too quickly to allow for it. Regardless, it wasn’t overwhelming for our palates and even some relative novices and Bea virgins remarked on how much they loved it. Dark fruits, very tightly coiled at this point with exotic spices. Firm tannins. Super duper young but a winner in a vintage when this was the only red wine that Bea produced. Really ought to have an extended decant. I’m a buyer...hoping to find more. — 16 days ago
Tonight's wine is the 2014 Paolo Scavino Cannubi Barolo. A beautiful wine from the Langhe region of Italy by the Scavino family.
The nose has notes of rose, cherry, menthol, clay pot, light smokey oak, anise and earth.
On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, anise, chocolate, herbs, spice, balsamic, integrated oak and earth.
This wine is medium to full bodied with a rich velvety mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity and medium + to high bold firm round tannins that leads to a long sumptuous finish. I hope everyone is having a nice week and looking forward to the weekend. It looks as though winter is rearranging its head here so please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 2 months ago
Exuding savory and meaty elements, all wrapped up in sexy and abundant black fruit. Roasted black cherry, soaked plum, beef jerky, hoisin, truffle, animal hide, hung meat, clove, Ceylon cinnamon, Indian spices, wilted flowers, tar, sweet wood smoke, scrubland, baked earth. Tannins are granular, powerful, but have a texture is forgiving as they drive down the middle palate. I’m a sucker for these wines. Wild, soulful, unapologetic and true. — 2 days ago
Sooo easy to drink. Yummy nose but nothing complex other than some plum, deep fruit, like a Sangria smell. The taste is smooth and drinkable, but not complex. — 9 hours ago
Just enough “funk” for orange wine fans, but not too much that it will put off the “funk averse.” Really excellent dinner wine in general, with nice citrus and acidity. — 21 days ago
