Barolo 'Carobric', Paolo Scavino

  • 100% Nebbiolo from Three of Scavino’s best terroirs: mainly Rocche di Castiglione vineyard (in Castiglione Falletto) blended with smaller percentages of Cannubi (in Barolo) and the Fiasco vineyard (in Castiglione Falletto)
  • Harvested by hand, normally after the 10th of October
  • Separate vinification of each single vineyard in stainless steel
  • Submerged-cap maceration (10-12 days in average)
  • Fermentation (20-30 days in average) are in stainless steel with temperature controlled and indigenous yeasts
  • Malolactic fermentation in 225 L barrels over the winter
  • The three single vineyards are aged separately in neutral French oak barrels for 12 months and further 12 months in large casks
  • Blended and aged 8 months  in stainless steel followed by 6 months in bottle
  • Note: The last year of production of Barolo Carobric will be 2018 as the 2018 was also the last harvest in the Cannubi vineyard. The Barolo Carobric since its first vintage, 1996, has been the same blend. Losing the rest of Cannubi vineyard, we decided to not replace it in the blend of the Barolo Carobric with another vineyard. Therefore, the decision to interrupt the production of Carobric to keep the identity of this wine, result of a specific blend.
