Paolo Scavino Vino Rosso (Piemonte) 2013

A quaffer from Paolo Scavino, a superior winery from the Barolo region. Founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto by Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Today, the winery is run by grandson Enrico Scavino together with his daughters Enrica and Elisa. The winery comprises 23 hectares, and is located entirely in the Barolo area and features19 Barolo historical crus located in Castiglione Falletto, Barolo, La Morra, Serralunga d’Alba, Verduno and Roddi.

Scavino describes the Vino Rosso as a blend which represents their "autochthon" or mish-mash of young vine varietals. The wine is ruby-red with purple hints. Nose of red cherries and spices. An inexpensive wine that receives a masters touch.  Pairs well with lighter dishes.
