2002 Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc Nebbiolo
about this wine:
The modern history of the Scavino family starts with this vineyard, within the Fiasco cru. Here the Nebbiolo grapes were always the best: consequently in 1978 young Enrico convinced his father Paolo to vinify these grapes separately, thereby establishing the austere and fascinating king of the Scavino winery. The soil is composed of gray silt-sand, marl, sometimes bluish, or whitish-gray on the surface and is called Marna di San'Agata fossili (tufo clay). The grapes are hand harvested in early October. Maceration and fermentation occur in temperature controlled steel rotary fermenters. Malolactic fermentation follows in oak barrels. Aging in French oak barriques for 12 months and a further 12 months in large French casks and ﬁnally 12 months in bottle.
The Paolo Scavino winery was founded in 1921 by Enrico Scavino's
grandfather Paolo. Today Enrico runs the winery with the help of his
daughters Enrica and Elisa. The winery is located in Castiglione
Falletto, one of the eleven communes of the Barolo appellation, in the
historical Langhe hills. The Scavino winery is rare in their possession
of grand cru's in six of the eleven villages of Barolo. The Scavino
family owns grand cru vineyards in the townships of Castiglione
Falletto, Barolo, La Morra, Roddi, Verduno and Serralunga. This
diversity of terroir gives the Scavino's a unique opportunity to produce
wines of extraordinary quality. The single vineyard crus have been a
personal mission of Enrico since he conceived and created the Bric del
Fiasc single vineyard label in 1978: The first Scavino cru. The
uniqueness of each vineyard's terroir today can be tasted in their four
esteemed single vineyard bottlings.
2010 will be Enrico's 60th year as the winemaker of Paolo Scavino.
