2004 Paolo Scavino "Carobric" Barolo

SKU #1166335 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Scavino’s 2004 Barolo Carobric comes across as classic in its expression of violets, black cherries, minerals and sweet toasted oak. It too offers gorgeous inner sweetness to its fruit, but it is more focused and less concentrated than the other 2004 Barolos. This is a beautifully proportioned, vibrant Barolo that is sure to find many admirers. Carobric is made from a blend of Rocche di Castiglione, Bric del Fiasc and Cannubi This bottling has often suffered an identity crisis among the single-vineyard wines in the lineup but in recent years its personality has gradually begun to show its potential. The 2004 is a terrific effort. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2004 Barolo Carobric is in a great place today where it is starting to show the first signs of aromatic complexity, yet it also clearly has plenty of upside for the future. Firm yet nicely integrated tannins give the 2004 much of its energy. Sweet tobacco, plums, underbrush, cherries and melted road tar linger on the multi-faceted finish. Carobric is a blend of fruit from Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautiful floral and blueberry notes, with hints of spice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Very ripe and delicious already. But needs time. (JS) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Carobric bottling from Paolo Scavino is comprised of fruit from Cannubi, Rocche and Bric del Fiasc that is from younger vines and do not go into those individual cru bottlings from the family estate. It was first produced in 1996. The 2004 was raised in one-third new French barriques and is a good, gently modern wine, offering up a bouquet of cherries, woodsmoke, herb tones, a touch of toffee, soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, suave and impressively long, with a more polished, accessible personality than the blended ’04 Barolo, an almost velvety texture and good length on the wide open finish. Inner quote mark (2/2016)
