It is an explosive flashy Barolo that captures the essence of the year. I find a wonderful balance of precision and richness in the glass not to mention more than enough fruit to counter the incisive tannins. Though open at the outset the Carobric shuts down quickly in the glass suggesting it is headed for a period of dormancy. A second bottle was far more open and expressive and feminine highlighting how hard it is to understand young Barolo! The Carobric is made from vineyards in Cannubi Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. This is a stunning set of new wines from Enrico Scavino. Over the last few years Scavino has begun to incorporate lots vinified in specially designed tanks that allow for greater contact with the skins. This year Scavino has a new Barolo from a recently acquired parcel in Monvigliero the most historic vineyard in the village of Verduno. Scavino had incorporated the fruit from this parcel into the straight Barolo when he had access to the vineyard under lease but now that he has full control of the vineyard he has decided to bottle the wine separately. The first vintage the 2007 is a stunner. -Antonio Galloni

Crazy nose of dried flowers and then dark fruits. Goes to licorice too. Full body with velvety tannins and intense blueberries and dark chocolate. Long and powerful. Best after 2016.
