Barolo ‘Prapo’, Paolo Scavino

The premier release of Scavino’s Barolo ‘Prapò,’ from Serralunga d’Alba! Vineyards, which sit at 370 meters above sea level and face south/southeast, were planted with massal selection in 2010. Soils here are comprised of Formazioni di Lequio, a yellow-red sand combined with silty gray marl. Fruit harvested by hand in the third week of October. Skin maceration took place over 12 days, followed by a 20-30 day fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeast. Wine aged in a combination of French barrique and large casks for 2 years prior to bottling.
