That said I am amazed how bright and primary the fruit still is. Sweet perfumed aromatics lead to a core of silky fruit as this elegant pedigreed Barolo emerges from the glass. The tannins are exceptionally refined all the way through to the finish while the French oak is virtually imperceptible. What remains is a gorgeous fruit-driven Barolo that captures the essence of the Scavino style at its best. The wine should enjoy a long drinking window to age 25 and quite likely longer. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2029. --- Antonio Galloni

Silky, round and impeccable in the glass, the 2004 fleshes out with exceptional purity and density. Time in bottle has given the 2004 a bit more volume, but the wine is stunningly beautiful, as it has always been. Rose petals, dark red cherries, mint and sweet spices give the finish its textured, super-expressive feel. Since 1990 the Scavino family has produced a number of stunning wines from this grand cru La Morra site; the 2004 is one of the best.
