The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Prapo (with fruit from Serralunga d'Alba) opens to a beautifully saturated appearance with bold fruit aromas of black cherry, plum and dried currant. Those rusty mineral notes that are so distinctive of this growing area come through loud and clear.
95 Points - James Suckling
A very fine-tannin red with plum, strawberry, chocolate and dark-walnut character. It's full-bodied, yet the tight tannins provide wonderful precision and focus. Racy at the end. Drink after 2022.
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Menthol, iris, new leather and dark spice aromas shape the nose. Full-bodied and concentrated, the palate delivers mature Morello cherry, blood orange, licorice and white pepper alongside taut, close-grained tannins before an espresso close.
94 Points - Wine Spectator
Rose, cherry, freshly cut hay and tobacco notes, with a light accent of oak spice, are the highlights of this elegant, complex Barolo. Silky and harmonious, with well-integrated tannins, freshness and a spicy aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2042.
